Her voice was heard . . . her tears from clouds Eternal fell round the Tree. " Ahania makes Urizen an unexpectedly sympathetic character, crying "Ah Urizen! Love! 52-53) with a real poignancy that only makes him seem "self-destroying" and bound in "chains of darkness" (BA v. 42-43). Granted, this is one central thrust of The Book ofUrizen: the past nobility of Urizen, which contrasts so grotesquely with his present condition that narrows and narrows. But the effect of Ahania's chant is to draw us into the situation as satire cannot, and her view of him is evidently a dimension to Urizen that Blake saw even as he considered him to be "the Demon" and the "dark power" of Chapter One in The Book ofUrizen.
