At and a New Review

I’ve had a long association with a website called The Tower of Babel.  It’s published essays and such by me since the 1990s.  But, regrettably, the site completely crashed recently and all content on it was lost, including my posts about my book Blake and Kierkegaard: Creation and Anxiety hosted on the subdomain  I’m unsure if I’d backed up any of these anywhere, so it’s very likely everything on that site was lost.  Some content, such as film essays, was posted both here and at that site, but some of it is just gone forever.

So I’m going to use this blog for all book updates for my previous book, Blake and Kierkegaard: Creation and Anxiety (Continuum 2010, hardcover; 2011, paperback).  Updates about my current anthology, Interpretation: Theory: History will continue to be posted at

The latest about Blake and Kierkegaard: it’s been reviewed yet again, this time by Robert Rix for Comparative Literature Studies vol. 49, issue 2, 2012.  It has also been reviewed by Blake: An Illustrated QuarterlyChoice,and Zoamorphosis.  I’m very grateful for the work of these reviewers and would like to thank them for the time they’ve taken to review my work.
