Blake's, by contrast, is an art of inflection and high rhetorical declaratives. Hence he insists on ‘minute particulars’ in the passage from Milton : not merely a catalogue of named flowers, but the names of all orders of being (Og and Anak, Ololon and Beulah) and the precise articulation of the dialectic of their acts at the different scalar levels of their appearances.

In his A Narrative of the Death of Captain James Cook to which are added some Particulars concerning his Life ( 1786 ) he wrote what many regard as the best contemporary account of Cook's death, portraying Cook as the very archetype of the enlightened explorer. It was another Rational Dissenter, Andrew Kippis ( 1725–95 ), who persuaded Samwell to publish his...
