Locke and Blake: A Conversation Across the Eighteenth Century
University Press of Florida, 1998 - 201 Seiten
"Although this book looks back mainly to Blake (after all, Locke could not have read Blake) it also looks past Blake to discover a Locke not given much shrift by Blake scholars. It does this in a constantly interesting sinuous juxtaposition of Blake's and Locke's views on a variety of subjects, some wonderfully unexpected. Glausser's grasp of his material is impressive, and he writes with admirable clarity. . . . A deft blending of historical, biographical, and interpretive scholarship."--Hazard Adams, Byron W. and Alice L. Lockwood Professor of Humanities, University of Washington
Locke and Blake is a composite critical biography of two giants of 18th-century culture. Organized by topics of cultural significance for the period, it weaves together two lives, focusing on critical topics as opposed to biographical details, in order to illuminate ideas of Locke and Blake and the cultural contexts and transformations of the "period" they shared.
Wayne Glausser is professor of English at DePauw University and author of articles on Locke and Blake as well as various topics in recent American fiction and popular culture.
