Recommends it for: Blake lovers.
Predating Frye's study by about 33 years, this book was the first serious attempt to systematically explain Blake's symbolism. It's a must read for anyone serious about studying Blake as a source of ideas about Blake widely disseminated in Blake scholarship prior to the 1950s. It still holds up after more than 80 years.
A classic, Blakean guide to Blake, like Frye's Anatomy of Criticism; an encyclopaedia of Blakean terms, Blakeology - invaluable for the love of Blake's work. It's a book to refer to, to dip into, not necessarily to read from cover to cover.
