Blake's nostos : fragmentation and nondualism in The four zoas by Kathryn S Freeman( )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blake's Nostos establishes The Four Zoas, Blake's controversial, unfinished epic, as the culmination of the poet's mythos. Kathryn S. Freeman shows that, in its freedom to experiment with nontraditional narrative, this prophetic book is Blake's fullest representation of nondual vision as it coexists with the material world. Blake's scheme of consciousness eliminates the Enlightenment hierarchy of faculties in a structure centered around a nondual vision operating through and subsuming the fragmented world. The author draws on the analogue of Eastern philosophy to describe Blake's nondualism. According to this interpretation of Blake's epic, consciousness itself is the hero whose nostos is the apocalyptic return to wholeness from the multiple ruptures that comprise the fragmenting journey of Albion's dualistic dream. Blake's Nostos demonstrates that for each of the central elements of myth - causality, narratology, figuration, and teleology - Blake superimposes such dual and nondual perspectives as time and eternity as well as bounded spaced and infinity
Women writers and the Asiatic Society of Bengal, 1785-1835 : re-orienting Anglo-India by Kathryn S Freeman( )

British women writers and the Asiatic Society of Bengal, 1785-1835 : re-orienting Anglo-India by Kathryn S Freeman( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tracing the literary relationship between British women and the Asiatic Society of Bengal, Kathryn Freeman argues that women writers, distinct from their male counterparts, interrogated Orientalist distortions of India through the lens of gender. Her study invites us to rethink the Romantic paradigm of canonical writers as replicators of Orientalists' cultural imperialism in favor of a more complicated stance that accommodates the differences between male and female authors with respect to India
A guide to the cosmology of William Blake by Kathryn S Freeman( )

14 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is not surprising that visitors to Blake's cosmology - the most elaborate in the history of British text and design - often demand a map in the form of a reference book. The entries in this volume benefit from the wide range of historical information made available in recent decades regarding the relationship between Blake's text and design and his biographical, political, social, and religious contexts. Of particular importance, the entries take account of the re-interpretations of Blake with respect to race, gender, and empire in scholarship influenced by the groundbreaking theories that have arisen since the first half of the twentieth century. The intricate fluidity of Blake's anti-Newtonian universe eludes the fixity of definitions and schema. Central to this guide to Blake's work and ideas is Kathryn S. Freeman's acknowledgment of the paradox of providing orientation in Blake's universe without disrupting its inherent disorientation of the traditions whereby readers still come to it. In this innovative work, Freeman aligns herself with Blake's demand that we play an active role in challenging our own readerly habits of passivity as we experience his created and corporeal worlds
