About this book

This book lays bare numerous sexy Blakes, arguing for both chastity and pornography, violence and domination as well as desire and redemption, and also journeying in the realms of conceptual sex and conceptual art. Fierce tussles over the body in, and the body of, the poet-artist's work celebrate Blakean attractions and repulsions.

Reviews

“The editors provide an incisive, polemical introduction to the book’s treatment of sex and gender in Blake’s work and its reception history. … the book remains essential reading for those interested in Blake’s representations of women and gender in his poetry and art. It shows in a definitive way that Blake’s value for sexual theory and practice both in his day and ours depends ultimately on the intellect and outlook that readers bring to his work.” (G. A. Rosso, Blake/An Illustrated Quarterly, Vol. 50 (3), Winter, 2016-2017)
