  As I was walking among the fires of Hell,
  delighted with the enjoyments of Genius;
  which to Angels look like torment and insanity.
  I collected some of their Proverbs. – William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, 1790
  How should we read these famous lines from Blake's masterpiece? What is the place of Reason in religion? Passion in morality? The Gothic in the Sublime – and vice versa?

Romanticism and Heroism

Call for Papers

  When every year and month sends forth a new one,

Of such as these I should not care to vaunt,
  I'll therefore take our ancient friend Don Juan.

                              Byron, Don Juan, Canto I, (ll.1-6)
