The Green Child by Herbert Read

Published by Olly Blackburn

Just finished Herbert Read’s extraordinary ‘The Green Child’ a forgotten, unclassifiable masterpiece on the nature of dreams and Utopias — both political & emotional & spritual.

Among its many immortal lines is this:

“There is no joy comparable to the joy of government, especially in circumstances of virgin chaos.”

Herbert Read was an extraordinary man, way ahead of his time, who lived an extraordinary life.
