Poster for the 2010 University Scholars Day at the University of North Texas discussing research on William Blake's modern-day influence on the visual word.
Abstract: William Blake is a well-known name in Romantic British poetic literature. His written works include (but are not limited to) "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell," "Songs of Innocence and Experience," "The Four Zoas," and "Milton" as well as numerous illustrations. The effect of this gifted man's work is so great that many have been inspired by his legacy, from later writers and artists of the Romantic period, to those of contemporary culture. This research will focus on the more recent time and will show the ways other artists were influenced by his work. The purpose is to trace Blake's presence in media that combine visual and written aspects in the same work (as Blake's own art often did) in order to assess the degree of his work's impact on those areas. Most of the research will center on graphic novels and comic books, which, being most similar to his own approach, are ideally suited for discussing William Blake.
