For next Wednesday (9/18), write a post that explicates ONE of the “Proverbs of Hell.”  Please take the time to unpack the meanings of the images, symbols, themes, and paradoxes contained in these explosive proverbs or aphorisms.  What do the infernal wisdom of these proverbs imply about the genre of “The Marriage of Heaven and Hell?”  Please categorize under “Proverbs of Hell” and don’t forget to create specific tags.

 

For inspiration, I’ve inserted a YouTube video of Marilyn Manson reciting the Proverbs of Hell during a 2011 poetry reading at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles.  The spirit of Blake lives on! Enjoy!
