Laboring at the Mill with Slaves

(p.78) Chapter Three Laboring at the Mill with Slaves
William Blake and the Impossible History of the 1790s
University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines the socioeconomic relevance of the works of William Blake. It suggests that his illuminated books show the relationship between political, cultural, economic, and social institutions and the subjective categories, the psychobiological modes of existence, produced and organized by them. This chapter also argues that Blake's interest in forms of organizations should be seen as his way of rewriting the conceptual language of modernization for alternative political and aesthetic purposes.

Keywords:   socioeconomic relevance, social institutions, organizations, modernization, illuminated books
