 Price including shipping/postage






In this short but illuminating study Matt Simpson has tried to demonstrate what Blake is saying in these wonderful poems and how they intimately converse with one another and with the illustrations of which they are inseparably a part. Each poem is given individual consideration while at the same time 'placed' in the dynamic context of the illustrated sequence as Blake arranged it. The main aim is not so much to 'explain' the poems as to help the reader to experience them as essential poetry of the highest order.

Matt Simpson is the author of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Much Ado About Nothing, Othello, Romeo and Juliet and Twelfth Night in the Student Guide Literary Series.
