A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful by Edmund Burke

An eloquent and sometimes even erotic book, the Philosophical Enquiry was long dismissed as a piece of mere juvenilia. However, Burkes analysis of the relationship between emotion, beauty, and art form is now recognized as not only an important and influential work of aesthetic theory, but also one of the first major works in European literature on the Sublime, a subject that has fascinated thinkers from Kant and Coleridge to the philosophers and critics of today.

The Truth About Unicorns

The unicorn is a legendary creature that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a single large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. The unicorn was depicted in ancient seals of the Indus Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in accounts of natural history by various writers, including Ctesias , Strabo , Pliny the Younger , Aelian [2] and Cosmas Indicopleustes. In European folklore, the unicorn is often depicted as a white horse -like or goat -like animal with a long horn and cloven hooves sometimes a goat's beard. In the Middle Ages and Renaissance , it was commonly described as an extremely wild woodland creature, a symbol of purity and grace, which could be captured only by a virgin. In the encyclopedias, its horn was said to have the power to render poisoned water potable and to heal sickness.

Dark like his skin. Harley will also be divided between Cass and Lil Lil for Lilith, a witch like her grandmother?
