During his apprenticeship, William Blake executed a series of pencil sketches and watercolour drawings of the interior of Westminster Abbey. This talk discusses these early pictorial works, now held in the Bodleian Library, and the influence of the Gothic aesthetic on Blake.
Mark Crosby is a Carr-Thomas-Ovenden Visiting Fellow at the Bodleian Libraries, an Oxford graduate and an Associate Professor in the Department of English at Kansas State University.
