Blake’s Critique of Milton and the Politics of Religion

In a dramatically original analysis, Jackie DiSalvo explores BlakeÆs reworking of Genesis and Paradise Lost in his prophetic poem The Four Zoas, creating a compelling new reading of both Milton and Blake. With informed argument and provocative insights, DiSalvo shows how BlakeÆs view of history prefigures the revaluation of our own myths of origin prompted by new political, psychological, and feminist perspectives.
