Blake's works have long been objects of troubled fascination for female readers and writers. Women Read William Blake brings together the thoughts and arguments of women academic and writers redressing the under-representation of the rich heritage of Blake feminist criticism which now exists. This unique volume contains essays by some of the most eminent scholars in the field, and will be of great use for scholars and students of Blake as well as those interested in seeing how a community of women writers have responded- over three turbulent decades--to the art of a canonical "dead, white, male."
