Eighteenth Century ANNE-JULIA ZWIERLEIN W HEN the archangel Raphael,
conversing with Adam, attempts to accommodate the dimensions of the heavenly
courts to human categories, he describes them as `wider far/ Than all this

The American poet William Logan wrote a poem entitled 'Keats in India',
published in his collection Vain Empires (1998). This poem, which received the
prestigious John Masefield Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America,
is a blank-verse monologue which imagines a posthumous life for Keats in India
in 1848. Inspired by Keats's consideration of a career as an Indiaman' surgeon,
voyaging to and from India, the poem captures the illusory effects generated by
India's ...

On the same page that he notes this pun, Hume brings out a metaphor in 'hatch': '
Advise if this be worth / Attempting, or to sit in darkness here / Hatching vain
Empires' (II. 376—8). 'Hatch' had long been used in the figurative sense 'contrive',
often implying 'a covert or clandestine process' (OED 6a), but Hume also insists
on the original sense: 'Hatching vain Empires; Dreaming of Designs that never
will succeed: A mean Metaphor from a Hen sitting on, and hatching her Eggs,

against ourselves, and our response to the debate indicates that such a
conspiracy is all too possible. Of course, Beelzebub does not escape the poem's
irony. We know that his final taunt — 'Advise if this be worth | Attempting, or to sit
in darkness here | Hatching vain Empires' (376-8) — is directed as much at him
as at his fellow devils; any empire apart from God is vain, even one secured
through subversion.
