A reading of the Marriage of Heaven and Hell on Twitter.
Just because we can’t meet up in physical space during Lockdown it doesn’t mean we can’t meet up in cyberspace to discuss our favourite poet, painter, engraver and prophet. On Monday 27th July 2020 we will be launching Blake’s Book Club on Twitter. Inspired by author Robert Macfarlane’s excellent #CoReadingVirus (and, we’re pleased to say, with his enthusiastic permission) we’ll be reading and exploring Blake’s provocative illuminated work, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. Over four evening sessions we’ll tackle the text’s subversive wisdom, its energetic call to arms and, well, whatever else you suggest. We’ll be assisted by George Laver, an MA literature student specialising in Blake (and member of the Blake Society). All are welcome, although you will need a Twitter account to participate. Follow the Blake Society account @Blake_Society and #BlakeBookClub for more details.
