The best of them, in their time, are probably those that follow. An Introduction to the Study of Blake (1927, 1952, 1967) by Max Plowman is clear and engagingly enthusiastic, though it has few claims to originality. Middleton Murry’s William Blake (1933, 1936, 1964), on the other hand, is vigorously original, as in his claim that Blake was simultaneously a profound ‘Christian’ and ‘a great Communist’. Both works were much admired by a generation of Blake students. A more lastingly useful introduction to Blake appeared in Jacob Bronowski’s William Blake 1757–1827: A Man without a Mask (1945; expanded in William Blake and Revolution, 1969) which applies deftly and convincingly a wide range of relevant and little-used information to show how Blake’s contemporary economic and political background directed and thwarted his work.
