About the Authors
  • William Blake, poet and artist, is a figure often understood to have 'created his own system'. Combining close readings and detailed analysis of a range of Blake's work, from lyrical songs to later myth, from writing to visual art, this collection of thirty-eight lively and authoritative essays examines what Blake had in common with his contemporaries, the writers who influenced him, and those he influenced in turn. Chapters from an international team of leading scholars also attend to his wider contexts: material, formal, cultural, and historical, to enrich our understanding of, and engagement with, Blake's work. Accessibly written, incisive, and informed by original research, William Blake in Context enables readers to appreciate Blake anew, from both within and outside of his own idiom.

    • Shows how William Blake's work across a range of media (e.g. engraving, painting, book illustration) sheds light on his better-known poetry
    • Situates William Blake in the contexts he shared with his contemporaries, the writers who influenced him, and those he influenced in turn
    • Contains close readings of Blake's work, from lyrical songs to later myth, from writing to visual art enrich our historical and cultural understanding of his output
