“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

I am not a man I am a free number!

I'm author 10 and author 42 of the very auspicious Cambridge Studies in Romanticism series. Last night we had a celebration of that fact, since there are now 100 books in the series. Many good old friends were there.

If it hadn't been for Marilyn Butler getting into my work and recommending that CUP publish it, way way back in 1991, who knows.
