  1. Los

    In the mythological writings of William Blake, Los is the fallen form of Urthona, one of the four Zoas. He is referred to as the "eternal prophet" and creates the visionary city of Golgonooza. Los is regularly described as a smith, beating with his hammer on a forge, which is metaphorically connected to the beating of the human heart. The bellows of his forge are the human lungs. Los's emanation, Enitharmon, represents spiritual beauty and embodies pity, but at the same time creates the spatial aspect of the fallen world, weaving bodies for men and creating sexual strife through her insistence upon chastity. In the Book of Urizen Los and Enitharmon have the child Orc, who is the embodiment of the spirit of revolution. It is of interest to note that the name Los is, by common critical acceptance, an anagram of Sol, the term for the Sun. Such innovations are common in many of Blake's prophetic poems.
