About the Author

SHEILA A. SPECTOR has devoted her scholarly career to studying the intersection between British Literature and Judaica, since receiving the MA in Comparative Literature, and the PH.D. in British Literature, both from the University of Maryland. In addition to numerous articles, she has published Jewish Mysticism: An Annotated Bibliography of the Kabbalah in English (Garland, 1984), the only comprehensive, book-length bibliography of English-language materials dealing with Kabbalism. She served as consultant for the film William Blake, part of the film series, Pioneers of the Spirit, produced by Trinity Television in 1998, and she published a two- volume study of Blake as a Kabbalist: Glorious incomprehensible: The Development of Blake's Kabbalistic Language, and Wonders Divine: The Development of Blake's Kabbalistic Myth, both published by Bucknell University Press (2001).


"Without exception, the contributors negotiate almost seamlessly between the fields of literature, history, cultural, and Jewish studies." - Frank Felsenstein, Ball State University, USA "The complex relationship between British romanticism and Anglo-Jewry has never before been discussed so exhaustively and with such sophistication." - Bryan Cheyette, University of Southampton, UK
