Not sure if I entirely agree with Barbauld on this - we are united by the emotions we express as humans, but pretty insular when crying or praying (or however you communicate with the Divine if your preferences are that way). Maybe we unite more when we find joy. Will ponder on that another time.
Alas, I a really late to the desk and already find fault, viewing yesterdays work with todays eyes. I am going to have to signpost this a bit better i.e. keep my eye on the task and discuss Barbauld's influence on the Romantics.
1,703 - not a lot for today, just trying to concentrate on the soundscapes - all those fricatives and plosives etc. Eyes are crossed - think I am done for now, but aware that I have tons to do over the next few days. Plus I have to book a train ticket to Plymouth for this Wednesday. Going to trick myself that I am going to Hogwarts hahaha.
