A Guide to the Books of William Blake for Innocent and Experienced Readers
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Writing for ‘serious readers of poetry’, Summerfield describes his aim as providing ‘a bridge between an initial joy in poems of exquisite and poignant beauty and a larger engagement, at once aesthetic and intellectual, with the lifework of a great author and artist’. Part I leads the reader through each of Blake’s works, from Poetical Sketches (1793) to Illustrations of The Book of Job (1826); Part II surveys, book by book, critical responses to Blake during the 20th century. Slightly off-mint.
