William Blake : a literary life by John B Beer ( Book )
15 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Was Blake mad or one of the sanest people of his time? Or is it better to think of him rather as a well-read, astute cockney visionary? In this new biographical study John Beer weighs the evidence, including new discoveries about his religious upbringing, and elucidates his best writings in an attempt to show why they still appeal to us two centuries after the urgency of his prophetic message was first delivered to a bemused readership. Covering Blake's early career, his major works (such as Songs of Innocence and of Experience) and his work as a visual artist, this new study will be a must for all students, scholars and general enthusiasts of Blake."--BOOK JACKET

Post-Romantic consciousness : Dickens to Plath by John B Beer ( Book )
16 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Post-Romantic Consciousness follows on from Beer's study Romantic Consciousness, discussing further investigations into human nature. As Darwinism gained ground, undermining Romantic modes of thought, questions concerning human consciousness remained. In Dickens, for example, the struggle between a consciously affectionate and benevolent view of the world and an unconscious attraction to the criminal and violent culminated in his failure to complete his last novel. Similar contradictions can be traced in the Society for Psychical Research, whose members hoped that scientific investigation of abnormal psychical experiences might produce further insights into human nature. F.W.H. Myers's postulation of a 'subliminal self' in all human beings suggested one solution, while William James and European thinkers such as Heidegger, Sartre and Havel explored their own conceptions of Being. Romantic influence persisted, however: Virginia Woolf, with her 'moments of Being', and Lawrence's insistence on the existence of a further level of consciousness in human beings, were followed in time by Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes, demonstrating a dialectic between her multifarious 'modern' consciousness and his rooted, physical sense of Being."--Jacket
