“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

Sydney Boyd at ASECS

My teaching assistant and student Sydney Boyd is talking on opera at ASECS later this week. If you are going you might want to hear her talk, which I just read. It's a very interesting paper on how opera bisects the world of the novel in Mary Shelley.
