Abstract / Summary

Although the vogue for psychoanalytic interpretations of Blake has not flourished since its most fertile period between June Singer’s The Unholy Bible: A Psychological Interpretation of William Blake published in 1973, and Diana Hume George’s 1980 book Blake and Freud, Blake as an artist of the unconscious has recently started to attract considerably more interest via phenomenological and postmodern approaches, for example in the work of Mary Lynn Johnson, Peter Otto and Laura Quinney. This paper considers how Blake has been appropriated by later writers as a myth-making artist with a particular emphasis on Jungian interpretations.
