Speak Silence: Rhetoric and Culture in Blake's Poetical Sketches

Speak Silence: Rhetoric and Culture in Blake's Poetical Sketches

by Mark L. Greenberg (Editor)

Editorial Reviews

A unique "exegesis" discussing Blake's "little book" of Poetical Sketches bringing forward scholarly topics by means of essays which comment on each other--forming a kind of roundtable discussion among the seven contributors. The critical analyses concentrate on traditional aspects of the poetry--Blake's experimental use of language, voice, and rhetorical forms as he addressed the sublime, politics, and cultural institutions. The contributors succeed in placing Blake within his own developmental process as an artist, and as an influenced and influencing factor on the growth of poetry in general. Annotation c.
