Enitharmon is a central figure in the mythology of the English radical poet William Blake. She is the personification of Eve, the Earth, Space, and Inspiration.
I am a writer and photographer, born in 1954. Once, a long time ago, I was a teacher of physics and maths (but I’m better now). I spent most of my working life in computing, starting in the printing industry and moving on to the backrooms of the City before earning a healthy crust as a freelance database analyst. I did it because it was what I did, but my real love was always writing.
Before I started school I made up stories. I even dabbled in poetry. I was terrified of anybody seeing it though. For years I kept them hidden, for fear of embarrassment, and played possum in school English lessons. It was only many years later that I tentatively posted a couple of my poems on the CIX conferencing system, and discovered to my horror that some people liked them! I don’t do poetry much these days, but I do do fiction, particularly crime fiction, and the occasional short essay giving my acerbic view of the world.
I first identified with Enitharmon several years ago, and I have adopted her as my patron and muse. Here in Enitharmon’s Cave, you will find a selection of my work.
