Blake and the Methodists explores the work of the poet and painter William Blake (1757-1827) within the context of Methodism – the largest dissenting religious group during his lifetime – and contributes to ongoing critical debates surrounding Blakes religious affinities by suggesting that, contrary to previous thinking, Blake held sympathies with certain aspects of Methodism, particularly as it was preached by its founder-member, John Wesley. Farrell suggests that Blakes theology is essentially eclectic in combining different aspects of doctrine and practice from diverse religious and mystical traditions, and argues for a less radicalised perception of the writers theological outlook than has previously been surmised by scholars.
