Penny Delightful…

I’m really enjoying the new season of Penny Dreadful. Last night’s exchange between Vanessa and Caliban was particularly entertaining, particularly as his views on religion echo my own:

“I read the Bible when I was younger. Then I discovered Wordsworth. And the old parables and platitudes seemed anaemic, even unnecessary.”

He later goes on to quote Blake’s To See a World… Like the creature in Mary Shelley’s original masterpiece, he’s infinitely more human than the real monsters that surround him.

“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.”
