Romantic artist and poet William Blake engaged with the intellectual conversations of his own time. Modern criticism has placed Blake in conversation with a variety of thinkers and intellectual movements: Freud’s psychoanalytic theories, Marx’s economic theories; or Derrida’s deconstructive critique. This panel seeks to listen to Blake’s voice in conversation with the intellectual currents of his time, and with later philosophies or theories that his work anticipates or informs. By situating Blake in conversations with other thinkers, we will investigate his continuing power to help others to see and act anew. Northeastern Modern Language Association Conference, April 11-14, 2010. Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Submit 300 word abstract by September 30, 2009.
