"Strange Prophecies Anew": Rereading Apocalypse in Blake, H.D., and Ginsberg
This book revives questions of religious and political authority in poetic prophecy. It argues that modern prophecy operates within a dynamic of continuity and estrangement that combines immanent and transcendent modes of representation, creating a poetry that revises the very tradition that authorizes it.
