An obvious case is the eight watercolors for A Mask: the serpent coiled around the Lady’s chair, for one instance, makes clear Blake’s reading of a relationship in Milton’s mind between the temptation motif of the poem and the story of Adam and Eve. As Irene Tayler writes, Blake has shown us “the whole complex of human error resting in our mistaken notions about the nature of the generative life” (Tayler 1973: 249).

The inﬂuence of the Regent of Day is “shed,” that is, “divided,” “scattered” as its etymology (from Old English “sceaden”) tells us, through those “thousand thousand Starrs” which the Moon “dividual” holds. This single word, “shed,” means that those thousand lesser lights, whose rays are reﬂections of the bright rays of the Sun, are “divided,” “scattered,” like the extensive and varied inﬂuences from Milton one ﬁnds everywhere, some directly, some by reﬂected/borrowed/subtle light.
