Eyes Ergo

A Burning Question
"O Terrapin the High and Mighty Low,
who granted you this knowledge that you know?
For I've never seen you lurk
in a book or hard at work,"
said Extra Pound of mind quite sound and eyes aglow.

The terrapin is thought to be greatly wise.

Eyes aglow? Is Blake operating here as some possible (or impossible) subtext?

Or Milton...

And we might ask, too, how does the enthusiasm for Italy, shared by both Milton and Pound (and Extra pound, we wonder?) compare to our 21st Century enthusiasm for all things Italian?

A little extra enthusiasm.

I had an Italian girlfriend once upon a time . . .
