Blake and the Bible

Usually delivers within 2 weeks.

Description

The Bible was crucial for William Blake and for his poetic genius, whether as an object of criticism or as an inspiration. This book-the first substantial study of the topic in sixty years-locates Blake within the broad spectrum of Christian biblical interpretation and explores the ways in which Blake engaged with the Bible. Christopher Rowland argues that Blake's approach to the Bible was broadly consistent, even though he underwent something of a religious change in his later years. The author also shows how Blake saw himself as being in the prophetic tradition and also as somehow continuing the work of John of Patmos, author of the Book of Revelation.
