Genevieve Daston (1928-2015), Professor of English Literature, Illion College; Blake scholar. Author of The Lost Traveller’s Dream, A Dark Hermaphrodite, and The Moment Satan Cannot Find, among others. “At night before I go to bed, I open the Collected Works at random and read a passage — a superstition, a ritual, far removed from any scholarly practice. So very often, the passage infects my dreams — if not that very night, then soon thereafter. Last night I came upon these lines: ‘Mutual Forgiveness of each Vice,/Such are the Gates of Paradise.’ I wonder what that will conjure up!”
