Published in 1783, Poetical Sketches was William Blake's first volume of poetry and his only published work to appear in letterpress. This "little book" has been relegated by some critics to the periphery of the Blake canon. Yet the book's uniqueness and authorship have drawn scholars to it, resulting in often-illuminating criticism. Speak Silence continues in this line and represents the first and only collection of essays devoted solely to Poetical Sketches.
What is most compelling about Speak Silence is the way in which chapters are in dialogue with one another. The collection resembles a conversation between its notable contributors, inviting readers to witness the developmental process of particular ideas about Blake's early art-and its relation to his later work-as they solidify or are transformed or dissolve.
