Great Regulars: Together, with [Washington] Allston, as we look

on Raphael's three divine figures, we feel the "pleasurable, full control/Of Grace." In other words, we are out of control. We are controlled by grace, in a kind of angelic possession. We are part now of a living universe that is "harmonious, boundless, intense." The universe becomes meaningful, infinite, and full of feeling--and we are right at the center.

from Christopher Nield: The Epoch Times: The Antidote--Classic Poetry for Modern Life: A Reading of a Poem by Washington Allston
