"Fantasy abandoned by reason produces impossible monsters: united with her, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of their marvels." This is the full epigraph for caprichio No 43., "The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters" by Goya. Who is she? Who is the mother of the arts? If she means "fantasy",who unites with her? I'm confused with this English sentence.
