William Blake's 'Songs'

A talk by Dr. Sarah Gaggarty, University of Newcastle, on the reasons Blake's writings were overlooked contemporaneously and only found true readership in the present day.


William Blake (1757-1827) sold scarcely any of his illuminated books and drawings in his lifetime, and his name was virtually unknown until Alexander Gilchrist's 'Life of William Blake' was published in 1863. So why did Blake produce nd sell so little of his work? What were his actual business practices and how did he represent buying and selling in his writings and designs? In this talk, Dr Sarah Haggarty will address these questions in relation to how Blake produced, marketed, and negotiated the sale of 'Songs of Innocence and Experience (1794)
