A substantial analysis divided into six parts, this, as the book indicates, "is not a critical essay on Blake's poetry, but an effort to define the condition of mind his work represents and to expose its psychological machinery from the inside by employing an idiom which is as close, poetically, as [Lindsay] can make it to the nature of the subject, and by accepting life as existing in terms of the values [Blake] creates."
