William Blake and Medicine

"Blake and Medicine" will help fill a large void in Blake Studies by showing how this important poet and artist's mythological universe is grounded in extraordinary ways by medical theories of his time. We cannot fully understand Blake's theories of liberation and why the body is so central to that liberation without knowing about medical science and where he got his notions of the body, sexuality, and gender from.
