Literary Manuscript Culture in Romantic Britain

The Afterword provides a brief consideration of the unique method of printed script developed by William Blake in his attempt to fuse the media of script and print, drawing and engraving, and thereby collapse the divide between handwriting and typography, word and image. Blake’s attempt to unite script and print aligns with one of the chief objectives of this study and inspires its methodological attempt to deconstruct the problematic separation between the two media, a division that owes itself at least in part, as this book has sought to demonstrate, to Romantic-era debates. This last chapter turns to Blake as a summation of the aims and methods of the book as a whole, which urge a more integrated and holistic approach to the study of literary culture.
