1975 MLA Blake Seminar
Subject: Blake’s Visions of the Last Judgment
Chairman: Morton D. Paley (University of California, Berkeley)
Co-Chairman: Anne K. Mellor (Stanford University)
This year the Seminar will return to a discussion format. There will be one or more principal discussants and, hopefully, wide participation by the Solemn Assembly. The subject is Blake’s various Last Judgment pictures; probably we will also want to consider his accounts of the Last Judgment in poetry and prose.
Anyone wishing to act as a principal discussant should send me a short summary—not more than a thousand words—of his or her presentation, accompanied by whatever photographic reproductions may be appropriate.
The Blake Newsletter will produce a leaflet of reproductions for use in the Seminar. We hope that the results of the seminar can be published in the Newsletter later, either in the form of an article by the discussants or as individual articles.
The discussant will be W. J. T. Mitchell of Ohio State University. The time and place will be announced later. Those wishing to attend should send a note to Morton Paley, Dept. of English, Boston Univ., Boston, Mass. 02215.
