Description

Between 1813-1823, five major poems appeared in England exploring the subject of sexual union between "sons of God" (usually depicted as angels) and "daughters of men" (usually depicted as Cain's female descendants). Why angels were suddenly conscripted into active service to serious poetry, by poets who expectedoand yet who really did not expectothat these embodied, male angels would be taken seriously, is the question this text seeks to answer.
