WORKS IN PROGRESS
Erdman, David (Stony Brook): “A group effort to read the Illuminations of The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, including all those minute hieroglyphics between the lines and in the margins, is well advanced. Marlene Van Meter is ‘Secretary’ of the group. We are aiming at publication in the spring.
“Mrs. Van Meter is beginning a dissertation on the symbolism of the sun. Donald K. Moore is embarking on an edition of Europe for his dissertation. He has also been assisting me in work on the facsimile edition of Blake’s Notebook, now nearing completion and to be published by the Clarendon Press. I have finished a draft of an introductory study of the emblem drawings in the Notebook, which I’ve begun trying out on critical Blakists.”
Easson, Kay Parkhurst: “William Blake in the Twentieth Century,” a book-length analysis of Blakean form and content in modern literature.
Easson, Roger R. and Tarr, Rodger L.: “A Descriptive Bibliography of William Blake’s Works and Ana, 1920-1970; A Supplement and Addenda to Geoffrey Keynes’ Bibliography of William Blake.”
Hagstrum, Jean: essays on the designs for The Four Zoas and for Tiriel. A study of the psychology of Blake.
