A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This survey of William Blake's aesthetic thought argues that Blake's theory and practice were more rooted in the circumstances of their historical movement that has been recognised. It shows that the changes in his theory and practice derived from specific, political and biographical conditions.


Blake's Altering Aesthetic argues that William Blake's aesthetic theory and practice were fare more rooted in the specific circumstances of their historical moment than has generally been recognized. Focusing on Blake's shifting attitudes toward the classical and the Gothic, William Richey approaches the poet from a fresh angle, claiming that no single aesthetic philosophy applies uniformly throughout Blake's career. Rather, the Blake that Richey traces is a highly self-critical individual who is constantly repudiating his once deeply held convictions and inverting his former positions. Richey argues convincingly that the changes in Blake's theory and practice derived from specific social, political, and biographical conditions that caused his thinking to veer in unpredictable and often surprising direction. Clearly written and thoroughly researched, Blake's Altering Aesthetic will contribute substantially to the study of Blake. Blake's Altering Aesthetic is a seminal work of outstanding scholarship and a genuinely original contribution to the literary analysis of Blake. -- Midwest Book Review
