[Dura; Countess of Egremont; Cratetos]

begin page 7 | back to top


  1. Dura (Jerusalem 90:62) is probably Jura. The Gaelic spelling is Dhura; the island is famous for its rocky sea-caves.

  2. No-one seems to have noticed that the Countess of Egremont to whom Blake dedicated his Vision of the Last Judgement did not exist, according to the Peerages and standard biographies! In fact, the Earl married secretly a woman he had lived with for some time. She was not publicly acknowledged as Countess, but she did exist.

  3. Cratelos (Erdman-Bloom p. 493, Keynes[e] ’57 p. 555) should read Cratetos: the verses are a translation from the Greek[e] of Crates of Thebes, via Stobaeus’ Anthology.
