This is a course blog for English 190 Senior Capstone course at the University of California, Merced.  I have created this site as a friendly non-hostile discussion forum where my students and I can openly share ideas, questions, and sheer joy on any topic pertaining to William Blake–the man, the artist, the mythic figure–and the inspiring work he has produced to “teach man to think he’s a free agent” (Poetical Sketches).  I invite all Blake enthusiasts to rate my students’ posts, offer insightful comments on them, and contribute to our free-ranging discussions.  Comments by those outside the Urizenic university of cold reason and abstraction are particularly welcome.  Enjoy!
