William Blake’s Four Zoas

August 26, 2011

Now I a fourfold vision see
And a fourfold vision is given to me
Tis fourfold in my supreme delight
And three fold in soft Beulahs night
And twofold Always. May God us keep
From Single vision & Newtons sleep.

— By William Blake, in a letter to Thomas Butts

The dark Religions are departed & sweet Science reigns.

— From “The Four Zoas” by William Blake

William Blake’s Four Zoas arranged by the Four Elements. Most references associate Urizen to Reason, Luvah to Feeling, Tharmas to Sensation, and Urthona to Intuition. This means Air is Reason, Fire is Feeling, Earth is Intuition, and Water is Sensation. However, I follow others that associate Air to Reason, Fire to Intuition, Earth to Sensation, and Water to Feeling. Another puzzle to consider.
