About the Author

Jonathan Roberts is the Paul O'Flinn Memorial Early Career Fellow in Romanticism at Oxford Brookes University. He previously worked as a college lecturer at the University of Oxford.


"Robert's book is an almost ideal introductory guide for undergraduate students first coming to Blake: clearly and concisely written, short and accessible, inexpensive in its paperback issue, and effective in orienting newcomers to Blake's work to pertinent background knowledge as well as different critical approaches to Blake...Any undergraduate reader of this work will walk away from it well-oriented to Blake and Blake studies." -College Literature--Sanford Lakoff
." be commended for its readability, the lucidity and conclusion of its argument and, above all, for the light that it sheds upon one of the most enigmatic and challenging of our Western poets...Robert's packs his histories with luminaries of the age..." "Robert's study presents one of the most accessible, helpful and enjoyable introductions to Blake available hitherto, inviting and heartening initiates and scholars alike to come to grips with the full complexity of this difficult, but inspiring, poet... A most edifying read." The Glass, Spring 09
