Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Worrall and Clark's previous collections played a key role in the historicist revolution in Blake studies, and the current book is no exception. The focus on nationalism and imperialism sketches in an under-represented portion of the historical picture for Blake. The list of contributors is exceptionally strong, with an even greater variety of approaches than in the earlier volumes.' - Nicholas M. Williams, Indiana University, USA
