Hi All, this is where I will be posting up a great deal about William Blake and Visionary Imagination… stay tuned:
William Blake’s Death Mask: what a powerful face!
In today’s lecture we looked at what is meant by “Visionary” imagination, with a special reference to Allen Ginsberg’s epiphany in reading the poem “Ah! Sunflower”. You can watch and listen to Ginsberg singing one of Blake’s songs right here.
Here now are the audio recordings for this morning’s lecture and the tutorials that followed. You can also look through the slide I used this morning in the pdf link below: Enjoy!
