Description

Lindisfarne Press 1991. isbn 0940262428. Near Fine.

The seven studies that comprise this book are the culmination of more than forty years of research into the meaning of Blake's symbolic themes by a scholar-poet who is internationally recognized as one of Blake's most profound interpreters. They are written so as to reach into the very heart of Blake's symbolic thought and for this reason may be read as an introduction to the whole of his imaginative vision.

Kathleen Raine (1908–2003) graduated from Cambridge University in 1929. She became one of English literature's most remarkable twentyth-century practitioners. Although she considered herself primarily a poet, she was also a prolific writer of prose, an astute critic, and a distinguished scholar. Her poems and essays assert that true poetry is an expression of the spirit, the unfolding of a reality often hidden by the material appearance of things. Raine wrote a three-part autobiography (1973-1977), founded the magazine Temenos in 1981 to articulate her views, and in 1990 established the Temenos Academy of Integral Studies, a teaching academy that stressed a multistranded universalist philosophy. A professor at Cambridge and the author of a number of scholarly books, she was an expert on Coleridge, Blake, and Yeats.
