>When you study the poems in the editions he [Blake] did or
oversaw, you really get a feel for the structural and
artistic issues in his work and how his poems seem to be
also talking about these issues.
I would really very much like to read more about this. It's

>he and the others I mentioned are so much a part of the
canon and still did so much themselves--kind of frowned upon
in many academic circles now.
Why is it frowned on? What's the motivation for this denial
of individual validity?
