about

Over the last decade, Romanticism and queer theory have been mutually illuminating and incredibly productive, but this canonical 'queering' has somehow veered away from William Blake. This collection looks anew at Blake's celebrated sexual visions, to see how they might appear once compulsory heterosex has been ditched as an interpretative norm.
