William Blake: “Two forms of Los with Enitharmon,” Plate 100 of Jerusalem, 1820.
"In the mythological writings of William Blake, Los is the fallen (earthly or human) form of Urthona, one of the four Zoas. He is referred to as the “eternal prophet” and creates the visionary city of Golgonooza. Los is regularly described as a smith, beating with his hammer on a forge, which is metaphorically connected to the beating of the human heart. The bellows of his forge are the human lungs. Los’s emanation, Enitharmon, represents spiritual beauty and embodies pity, but at the same time creates the spatial aspect of the fallen world, weaving bodies for men and creating sexual strife through her insistence upon chastity.”
Used to be the one of the rotten ones. And I liked you for that. Now you’re all gone, got your make-up on, and you’re not coming back.
Can’t you come back..?
