Bentley, BB, A9. “America was the first of Blake’s books to name a place [Lambeth] in the imprint... which was an act of defiant courage... for the first time he designated one of his books as “a prophecy”... he concentrated particularly on the dramatic events in Boston... Blake continued his tale in Europe and then to make the cycle of continents complete he wrote “Africa” and “Asia”giving a general title of all four: The Song of Los.” (Damon, Blake Dictionary).
