2013 (English)In: Literature film quarterly, ISSN 0090-4260, Vol. 41, no 4, 254-265 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
An essay is presented which examines the use of William Blake's poem "And did those feet" ("Jerusalem"), in various contexts. The author explores the process by which Blake's poem has become a symbol of a class-based and militaristic system. According to the author, even as Blake became the Romantic writer who was the most influential in the 20th century, editors and scholars were slow to emphasize the political dimensions of Blake's art.
