Marilyn Manson Recites William Blake

Marilyn Manson, poet and performance artist.

Marilyn Manson gave a poetry reading in L.A., in support of The J. Paul Getty Trust. On 10 September, Manson read William Blake's celebrated poem The Proverbs of Hell. The poem's most popular line: "The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom." But the best part is Manson's decision to have a drink of some strange orange liquid at the poem's conclusion. Fitting.
