Summary 'Provocative, readable, significant.' - British Association for Romantic Studies Bulletin & Review 'Helen Bruder's provocative, readable, significant book is an enlivening feminist-historicist study of Blake's early illuminated texts from 1789-1794 (leaving aside the Songs), and presents itself as a 'recontextualisation' of these works in the light of the failure of mainstream Blake criticism to acknowledge the ways in which Blake's writings are enmeshed in the sexual and gendered debates of his day.' - British Association for Romantic Studies Bulletin and Review.
