Miscellaneous Epigrams
And in melodious accents I
—AND 1 in melodious accents I
Will sit me down, and cry ‘I! I!’
Note 1. III Following the prose passage in Blake’s ‘Advertisement’ in the MS. Book: ‘I demand therefore of the amateurs of art the encouragement which is my due. If they continue to refuse, their is the loss, not mine, and their is the contempt of posterity. I have enough in the approbation of fellow labourers. This is my glory, and my exceeding great reward. I go on, and nothing can hinder my course.’ [back]
