William Blake's final drawings given a spectacular send up

Dante’s The Diving Comedy

A tale divided into three canticas: The Locker Room, The Deep End, The Public Showers.


yeah, some poofreding may be in order


I heard that one (belly) flopped. Dante’s ruminations on what should happen to its critics was then part of the inspiration for the Inferno section of The Divine Comedy.

“A spectacular send up”

To me, send up means parody. Which left me very confused. Maybe its a Britishism?


Well, I was thinking it must be a new Illitischism, like breaks on a car. Did he mean “Send off”?

Obligatory (at least, I would hope…)

From Blake’s “Auguries of Innocence” & “He who binds himself to a joy,” brought to music by Bill Douglas and the Ars Nova Singers –
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

He who binds himself to a joy
Does the winged life destroy:
He who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity’s sun rise.

In before the Jacques Cousteau jokes.

No. It’s not.

Sound like it made a big splash on him!
(Too easy)

Maybe a bit more of a contemporary reference…
