The World Is Mine by William Blake is about the Never-Never Land of tired radicalism which is as misty as the romantic pastures of the true-love magazines. Its hero Don Cristobal Pinazon, is an anarchist with a deep hatred for the tyrants of Spain. This novel is merely a pretty personification of recent history. It is the work of a man of such hurried and hungry intellectual curiosity that he can never descend from convenient abstractions to human beings.
