DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

One of the most difficult poets in the English language, William Blake has nevertheless attracted a great deal of literary critical attention in the last 20 years. This new volume in the Palgrave Advances series serves as an accessible guide for students, researchers and scholars to various critical approaches to Blake, (for example, Gender Studies, Science Studies, Postmodernism), allowing readers to survey the breadth of work on Blake. Each chapter engages with leading critical articles on Blake as well as suggesting issues and problems still requiring discussion, thus making the volume an ideal guide for those wishing to participate in the growing discussion of this vital figure.

Reviews

'Blake beginners will appreciate the lucid tours of landmark criticism and mapping of major debates, while seasoned Blakeans will discover gems in both the painstaking reviews of scholarship and the individual perspectives of a range of well-selected scholars. The collection is uniquely forward-looking, as it does not stop at projecting future vectors of Blake studies, but goes beyond period and discipline to assert Blake's presence in politics, science, theory and literature from the nineteenth through the twenty-first-century.' - Tristanne J. Connolly, St. Jerome's University, Canada
