“EVERY GREAT LITERATURE has always been allegorical–allegorical of some view of the whole universe.  The Iliad is only great because all life is a battle, The Odyssey because all life is a journey, The Book of Job because all life is a riddle.

G. K. Chesterton 



“Mans desires are limited by his perceptions; none can desire what he has not perceived.

William Blake
