Blake Ethics and Forgiveness Book Description :

For the last two decades, scholars who specialize in the poetry and art of William Blake have stressed the formal and historical dimensions of his aesthetic theories and practices. Such an emphasis neglects the ethical commitments that inform his work. Primary among these ethical commitments is Blake’s passionate advocacy of forgiveness between human beings as a means to solve the problem of human evil, an advocacy that seems to contradict Blake’s assertions that ethical laws create the illusion of human evil and employ the concept of “forgiveness” solely to reinforce the terms of the original oppression. Blake, Ethics, and Forgiveness focuses on an important and pervasive issue found in the work of the English Romantic visionary poet, engrav...

My Business Is to Create Book Description :

For William Blake, living is creating, conforming is death, and “the imagination . . . is the Human Existence itself.” But why are imagination and creation—so vital for Blake—essential for becoming human? And what is imagination? What is creation? How do we create? Blake had answers for these questions, both in word and in deed, answers that serve as potent teachings for aspiring writers and accomplished ones alike. Eric G. Wilson’s My Business Is to Create emulates Blake, presenting the great figure’s theory of creativity as well as the practices it implies. In both his life and his art, Blake provided a powerful example of creativity at any cost—in the face of misunderstanding, neglect, loneliness, poverty, even accusations of insanit...

Blake Politics and History Book Description :

This anthology of essays charts the work of William Blake - combining traditional and current historicist methods with a plurality of other approaches. While many essays here recuperate a radical Blake opposed to imperialism, slavery, and patriarchy, differences emerge over the nature of Blake's radicalism and his stance on revolution, violence, and democratic pluralism. Contributors may champion a Blake critical of patriarchal discourse and practice, but they remain cautious about Blake's "homocentric" solutions. In the "Blake and women" section, authors seek to reorient discussions by connecting Blake to historical issues concerning women, particularly domestic ideology and the idealised female of the conduct books....

Blake s Altering Aesthetic Book Description :

In this breakthrough study, William Richey examines the mind of one of the most ambitious poet-thinkers of the Romantic era. Offering a new and stimulating survey that shows William Blake's aesthetic thought moving through "a sequence of sharp and sudden ruptures", Blake's Altering Aesthetic argues that Blake's aesthetic theory and practice were far more rooted in the specific circumstances of their historical moment than has generally been recognized. Focusing on Blake's shifting attitudes toward the classical and the Gothic, Richey approaches the poet from a fresh angle, claiming that no single aesthetic philosophy applies uniformly throughout Blake's career. Rather, the Blake that Richey traces is a highly self-critical individual who is constantl...
