ye are many – they are few

with one comment

The big banner, which I saw them making today in the department common room and which may or may not have made the tears well up in my now outrageously bloodshot eyes, quotes the last five lines of this. Absolutely brilliant.

'Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number -
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you -
Ye are many - they are few.'

Starting to write a talk for a TBD appearance at another occupation. Something having to do with the often very, very complex relationship between what we study and our political commitments. Inspired to take up that topic by this vigil tonight. Will continue my new highly exciting, if life-shortening and blog-informed, habit of writing at speed and think about it between essay marking, teaching sessions, union meetings, kid mindings, and of course occupation visitings tomorrow with an aim of writing it all down on the train.
