Fearful Symmetry by Northrop Frye

Book Description

This brilliant outline of Blake's thought and commentary on his poetry comes on the crest of the current interest in Blake, and carries us further towards an understanding of his work than any previous study. Here is a dear and complete solution to the riddles of the longer poems, the so-called "Prophecies," and a demonstration of Blake's insight that will amaze the modern reader. The first section of the book shows how Blake arrived at a theory of knowledge that was also, for him, a theory of religion, of human life and of art, and how this rigorously defined system of ideas found expression in the complicated but consistent symbolism of his poetry. The second and third parts, after indicating the relation of Blake to English literature and the intellectual atmosphere of his own time, explain the meaning of Blake's poems and the significance of their characters.

Books By Author Northrop Frye

Driv'n by Fortune by Northrop Frye Driv'n by Fortune, Paperback (December 2014)

The story of the 78th Fraser's Highlanders moves from the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion, through the Seven Years' War and the American Revolution, to the War of 1812. When these men were rewarded free land in the "New World," they brought with them revolutionary ideas, creating a legacy that extends far beyond Scotland and Canada.

Anatomy of Criticism by Northrop Frye Anatomy of Criticism, Paperback (September 2000)

Assumes that criticism is a structure of thought and knowledge in its own right. In four essays on historical, ethical, archetypical, and rhetorical criticism, employing examples of world literature from ancient times, this work reconceives literary criticism as a total history rather than a linear progression through time.
