Pervaded with that Ceaseless Motion 12:53 2006
Shelley's "Mont Blanc" poem read with sound by Mario Diaz de León. Note on the title: For some inexplicable reason, on the day of the recording I found myself without a copy of Shelley’s "Mont Blanc". I quickly downloaded one from some online Shelley site. Only much later and far too late did we discover that two lines were missing. Line 32: “Thou art pervaded with that ceaseless motion”. This was partially reintegrated to the poem by becoming the title of our collaborative reading. Line 65: “Blue as the overhanging heaven, that spread”. This beautiful line is still spreading.
