Rethinking Blake's Textuality.
Columbia: University of Missouri Press, (1993). First edition.
8vo., blue cloth, pp. [xi], 164, a couple of illustrations. The author concentrates on Blake's epic poem, " Jerusalem" , and argues that Blakean textuality appears to be "post-structuralist" because Blake was concerned with the same epistemological crises with which poststructuralists are concerned. Drawing on eighteenth century documents, she seeks to make the poem speak from its historical moment. Fine in dust jacket.
