Blake at the SCSECS

At the second annual meeting of the South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, 3-5 March 1977, in Houston, Texas, Roberta D. Gates (Southern Technical Institute) read a paper on “William Blake’s The Everlasting Gospel” at the session on Religious Values in the Eighteenth Century, and, at the session on Art and Literature, Stuart Peterfreund (University of Arkansas, Little Rock) read “Blake, Stubbs, and ‘The Tyger’: A New Interpretation,” and Michael M. Cohen (Murray State University) read “Blake’s ‘The Fly’: Visual Metaphor vs. Literary Criticism.” Friday afternoon Blake’s engravings were presented to the accompaniment of musical settings. Professor Charles McCabe (Department of English, University of Houston) explained the engravings; musicians included Jeffrey Lerner (School of Music, University of Houston), clarinet; Albert Hirsh (same), piano; and Martha Wiliford (Texas Opera Company), soprano. The program lists “In a Myrtle Shade” in the version set by Charles T. Griffes; “The Wild Flowers Song,” Paul Hindemith; “Leave, O Leave Me to My Sorrows,” Nicholas Flagello; selections from Vaughan Williams’ “Ten Blake Songs for Voice and Clarinet”; “Three Songs of Innocence,” Arnold Cooke; “Daybreak,” Henry Cowell; “The Lamb,” Theodore Chanler; and “The Tiger,” Virgil Thomson.
