Summary
"Focusing on cultural change, genre reinvention, and modern and postmodern approaches to language, "Strange Prophecies Anew": Rereading Apocalypse in Blake, H.D., and Ginsberg revives questions of religious and political authority in poetic prophecy. Prophets generally function as figures of dissent in religious and literary history; yet scholars tend toward readings that produce a consolidation of authority, a distinctly Miltonic visionary line and a select "visionary company." Tony Trigilio describes an alternative lineage, demonstrating that the prophetic poetries of William Blake, H.D., and Allen Ginsberg create a counter-history which resists religious and literary orthodoxy to such an extent that it revises the very tradition which authorizes it."--BOOK JACKET
