A Sensitive Body
This chapter analyses the part of William Blake The Four Zoas about Albion's death. This part of the poem described Los' work to establish the boundaries within which the fallen world would take shape and the construction of the substance of Albion's fallen body. This chapter explains the meaning of Albion's seven sneezes and his tears of blood before his death. It suggests that the sneezes represent the seven days of creation while the tears of blood signify the repression integral to Albion's fallen identity.
