The Wond'Rous Art: William Blake and Writing


"The Wond'rous Art: William Blake and Writing offers an extended analysis of what writing means to Blake as a thematic, formal, and theoretical construct. Arguing that writing, both as a thematic concern and a physical action, forms a site of contention for the representation of and resistance to signification, this study yokes two dominant contraries in Blake criticism: the emphasis on the material aspect of Blake's work and practical matters of textual production familiar from the work of Joesph Viscomi, and the poststructuralist approach to Blake suggested in the work of critics such as Peter Otto and Donald Ault."
