Presented by Roger E. Moore, PhD, senior associate dean, director of undergraduate education, and principal senior lecturer in English, Vanderbilt University 

Join Dr. Roger Moore as he discusses the deep influence of the poetry and art of William Blake on Matthew Ritchie’s work. Images of gardens and apocalyptic dissolution are as central to Blake as they are to Ritchie—Dr. Moore will explore the common imagery of these two artists as well as their interest in unorthodox, esoteric spiritualities.
