Ancient of Days by William Blake


When Myth Incarnates in the Waking World

Mythorealism is something new: a vision of life and the world based on the fantastic aesthetic; a form of mysticism; a worldview of dreams and visions and the realm of myth.

Mythorealism is what happens when myth incarnates in the waking world.

Like its cousin, magical realism, Mythorealism encompasses facets of reality which aren't ordinarily perceived and brings them into the waking world.

Reality is more than bones and blood. It is the spirit lurking behind stones and flesh...

Myth stepping into Matter...

The World being uttered...

Or, as the poet T. S. Eliot wrote:

"Between the idea and the reality
Between the motion and the act
Falls the Shadow."
