Abstract

Numerous claims have been made for a sexual Blake, from post-lapsarian pessimist to free-loving hippie. Queer Blake raises a flag for the weird, perverse, camp and gay directions of the artist's life and work. This chapter considers the influence of Blake on post-war British and American artists engaged with some aspect of queer theory.
