E. Valentine Daniel’s 1994 comparison of beauty and pain as aesthetic experiences in “The Individual in Terror” is particularly instructive. Focusing specifically on the relationship of beauty and pain to language, he argues that both are “concerned with the sensory ... with throbbing precepts that push against the conceptual membrane that encloses the world of active semiosis of articulate speech” (Daniel 1994: 233). Pain and beauty are also similar in that both put “language on trial;” but they do so in different ways: “beauty finds language wanting because of beauty’s profound inexhaustibility; pain finds language wanting in pain’s excruciating particularity” (Daniel 1994: 233).

10 Morris devoted the last ten years of his life to book publishing. Dissatisfied with the state of British publishing, he founded the Kelmscott Press with the hope of producing “beautiful” books with a strong visual element: they were filled with exquisite detail, including illustrations, decorative motifs, and printed cloth book covers. 11 Even though Morris combined densely patterned carpets, upholstery, and wallpaper, his designs, which were influenced by nature but with orderly, flat areas of color and a graceful linear quality, had a clean simplicity.
