This will be the third graduate offering of Blake at the University of Tulsa. The first was a seminar in 1968 concentrating upon Milton, and, according to Professor Weathers, “it was in that seminar that the idea for Blake Studies was developed by Kay Parkhurst and Roger Easson.” The second offering was a seminar in 1971 with special emphasis upon student creative work—plays and poems primarily—written in response to Blake’s work.
