The Valley of Vision

Blake as Prophet and Revolutionary

by Peter Fisher, Northrop Frye

Series: Heritage

The book is not a study of Blake's sources but of his context. The author is trying to answer the question: given Blake's general point of view, why does he make the specific judgments he does make, judgments which so often seem merely glib or petulant or perverse.
