John Dunn original writing

A three volume collection on Dr John Dunn.

William Blake wrote in mythic form because there is no other way to approximate to a description of the reality of being. The poet W. B. Yeats understood as much, which is why he, along writer and poet Edwin John Ellis, championed the publication of Blake's works.

See image: The Works of William Blake: Poetic, Symbolic and Critical, edited with lithographs and a memoir and interpretation by Edwin John Ellis and William Butler Yeats,in three volumes.

Blake’s invented myths are often dismissed in prosaic terms as the struggle between enlightenment and free love on the one hand, and restrictive education and morals on the other. This is an utter irrelevance which only serves to trivialise Blake’s works. Blake’s goal was to recreate the cosmos in his own poetics and visual art, thereby establishing the cosmic stage on which to set the reality, i.e. the struggle between good and evil.

Just a thought: In Weininger’s conflation of race, religion and gender is both rage against the passive acceptance of necessity and despair at the seeming lack of any alternative. Like Marx, Weininger believed that we were all ‘Jews’ now and, by his own inference, this meant feminine, passive, unproductive, unconscious and amoral. (Child of Encounter) John Dunn

Gentle motorcycle touring on a Royal Enfield Classic 500.

The historical, quirky and unusual features of the English countryside seen from the saddle are captured on video.

Join me as I follow maps, park up and take a look around.

"...I love riding these quiet country lanes - the type of road on which this Royal Enfield excels, with its low revving, low compression, long stroke engine just chugging away, able to pull even the lowest speeds on this type of road in its highest gear. It all makes for a very satisfying way to travel around when seeking out the historic, the unusual and the quirky points of interest from the English landscape."
