Garden of Egdon

10 Jan

Garden of Eden by Thomas Cole

Remember way back when when I threw out that little line about Egdon being a pretty similar word to Eden?  It’s okay, it was a long time ago, and was only a teensy sentence in a post about something seemingly different.  It’s right here, if you’d like to refresh your memory.

Anyway, all of that was before I got to this quote:

But here, away from comparisons, shut in by the stable hills, amoung which mere walking had the novelty of pageantry, and where any man could imagine himself to be Adam without the least difficulty, . . .

Am I on to something?
