Over the last ten years the field of Blake studies has profited from new discoveries about Blake’s life and work. This book examines the effect that Blake’s mother’s recently discovered Moravianism has had on our understanding of his poetry, and gives special attention to Moravianism and Swedenborgianism and their relation to his sexual politics. This is accomplished by a close reading of Blake’s poetry, which examines in detail the subjects of religion, sex, and the attempted colonization of Africa by a Swedenborgian utopian group.

She argues that, once we collate the different messages he constructed for each of his target audiences, we find him advocating a system that would have been recognized by his contemporaries as Wesleyan in character."

In a dramatically original analysis, Jackie DiSalvo explores Blake’s reworking of Genesis and Paradise Lost in his prophetic poem The Four Zoas, creating a compelling new reading of both Milton and Blake.
