NOTES
NOTE A, p. 29. For example: A Vision of the Last Judgment: 'Albion . . . in whose Sleep, or chaos, Creation began ( Keynes edition, p. 152). Milton, plate 22, line 25: "'Now Albion's sleeping Humanity began to turn upon his Couch.'"Jerusalem, plate 15, lines 9-10: "'O Divine Spirit sustain me on thy wings! That I may awake Albion from his long and cold repose.'" Jerusalem, plate 94, line 1; "'Albion cold lays on his rock'"; plate 95, lines 5-6: "'The Breath Divine went forth over the morning hills, Albion rose in anger'"; plate 97, lines 6-7: "'Then Albion stretch'd his hand into Infinitude, And took his Bow.'" See also p. 65, p. 2 and Note F.
NOTE: B, p. 22. Compare this couplet from The Gates of Paradise with:

From the Everlasting Gospel (d) ( Keynes edition, p. 329); this was written about the year 1818.

The Negation must be destroyed to redeem the Contraries (plate 46, lines 32-33).
'To where the Contraries of Beulah war beneath Negation's banner' (plate 38, line 23).

NOTE. D, p. 26. The Four Zoas, book 1, lines 6-10:

'Four Mighty Ones are in every Man; a Perfect Unity
