William Blake’s vison of the ‘deadly dreams of good and evil’

Uncategorised Oct 24, 2019

I just loved this comment from William Blake – I think it puts it finger on just how obsessed we are with whether we are good or bad….
…I do not consider either the just, or the wicked, to be in a supreme state, but to be, every one of them, states of the sleep which the soul may fall into in its deadly dreams of good and evil, when it leaves Paradise following the serpent.
William Blake, “A Vision of the Last Judgement”
