Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“An indispensable tool for the scholar of Blake and his complex symbolism.”—Library Journal

“A rich treasury embodying the results of a lifetime of masterly and devoted research into every aspect of Blake’s work and thought . . . a momentous event in Blake scholarship.”—V. De S. Pinto, Modern Language Review

“[T]he dictionary is stuffed full of entries that enlighten and guide us in our encounter with Blake. . . . It offers us an impressive mapping of a unique poet and thinker’s imaginative universe. Blake was, and remains, particular and peculiar, and he needs critics sensitive to the asymmetries of art and literature that lie beyond neater, more scientific, symmetries and algorithms.”—The Times Literary Supplement
