0 Reviews
Kathleen Raine's seven studies are the culmination of more than forty years of research into the meaning of Blake's symbolic themes by a scholar-poet who is recognized internationally as one of the most profound interpreters of his works. They are written in a way that reaches into the very heart of Blake's symbolic thought and, for this reason, may be read as an introduction to the whole of his imaginative vision. This is an essential work for understanding this giant of Imagination and English literature.
