Thesis title: Blake's Los: The Eternal Prophet's 'fall into Division & his Resurrection to Unity'
Supervisor: Dr Timothy Michael
My research considers on Los the Eternal Prophet through close analysis of Blake's language, images, and material texts. It traces Blake's revisions and rewritings of Los's fallen division and redemptive reunification across the oeuvre to question how Blake eventually finds a successfully redemptive prophetic model in Jerusalem. Through the lens of Los, my research explores how Blakean prophecy relates to and resists Romantic era conceptions of prophecy, vision, and art.
Research interests: William Blake, Romantic prophecy, language, mythology, bibliography, visual art.
