Biographicon is a cultural psychogeography of the Northern Enlightenment

The Goths fancied that the souls of the illustrious dead were transmuted into flame; and that tomb-fires ascended from the graves of heroes, which became stars in the firmament. Such a transmutation the eminent really undergo by the record of their lives: thenceforth, like the lamps in cities, they blaze in the eyes of men, and guide the steps of each successive passenger along the nobler paths of human life.
