Humanity would again possess divine proportions through a progressive development of its own nature rather than through obedience to the supposed laws of an external deity. Urthona represents that fourfold, unbounded vision that is the normal attribute of the redeemed man.

Emotion A Innocence and Experience During the Romantic Age, many poets focused on connecting with their audience on a deeper level by writing about mundane topics. Such vision is not bound by the particulars it produces through contraction, nor is it bound by the unity it perceives when it expands.
