“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Tim: Just want to add that I found your piece in NLH, "An Object-Oriented Defense of Poetry," to be equally brilliant and inspiring! Many thanks for it, Evan Gottlieb
