Constructive Vision and Visionary Deconstruction: Los, Eternity, and the Production of Time in the Later Poetry of William Blake.

New York: Oxford University Press, 1991. 8vo, 244pp. Three full-page Illustrations. Blue cloth with printed green dust-jacket. Very light edgewear. Very good. First edition. “This book focuses on the tension in Blake's poetry between a hermeneutics of suspicion and a hermeneutics of belief: it offers a new account of the way in which the major prophecies work and of the strategems they employ to consolidate error and so open their readers' eyes to alterity. Central to this reading is a re-definition of the role of Los and Jesus in Blake's work.” (blurb) Bentley, BBS, p. 596. (Item Id: 101280)
