William Blake and Dead Man Troy Thomas Linda Hutcheon
Adaptation English 2011 Thomas's main argument is that Jim Jarmusch's film Dead Man (1995) not only references the artistic work of William Blake, but is actually a complex adaptation of Blake's collected work. Furthermore, Thomas claims that Dead Man is best understood only when one considers its relationship to Blake's work. 0 0
The Ghostly Place of Children and Childhood in the Short Fiction of Walter de la Mare Shane McCorristine Allusion
The Lion and the Unicorn English 2010 McCorristine traces the roots of de la Mere's portrayals of the imaginative child to William Blake and William Wordsworth, albeit tempered with a realistic understanding of the hard facts of childhood.

The Literary Discourse of Blade Runner: Film as a Literary Collage Decio Torres Cruz Allusion
TradTerm English
2007 Cruz's main argument is that traditional literature, in many cases, has influenced cinema just as cinema has influenced literature, despite some scholars' bemoaning the disproportionate influence of cinema. As a case study, Cruz offers an in-depth look at allusions to Blake, Dante, and Milton in the sci-fi thriller Blade Runner. More specifically, he finds that several allusions to Blake's poems come across in the movie, specifically in relation to themes about the Fall and redemption of Man. 0 0
Panelling Parallax: The Fearful Symmetry of William Blake and Alan Moore Roger Whitson ImageTexT 2006 Whitson argues that the symmetry in Blake's The Tyger allows for an extensive reading of The Watchmen, intertextually making the reading of parallel structures in the movie more coherent. 0 0
America, a Prophecy: When Blake Meets Blade Runner Alexis Harley Allusion Sydney Studies in English English 2005 Harley argues that Blade Runner is more indebted to Blake's America, a Prophecy than to Shelley's Frankenstein, as is commonly asserted. In particular, she points to alignments between Blade Runner's and America's political themes. 0 0

Eating Blake, or an Essay on Taste: The Case of Thomas Harris's Red Dragon Nicholas M. Williams Reference
Cultural Critique English 1999 Williams draws attention to a reference to Blake's painting The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with Sun in Thomas Harris's novel Red Dragon. Essentially, Williams claims that the character Francis Dolarhyde's eating of Blake's famous watercolor serves as a commentary on the incorporation of high art into mass-media and the relations of consumption that that act of incorporation entails. 0 0
Blake's "Jerusalem" and Popular Culture: The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner and Chariots of Fire Sophia B. Blaydes
Philip Bordinat
Literature/Film Quarterly English 1983 Blaydes and Bordinat explain how the films The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner and Chariots of Fire reference and transform Blake's poem "Jerusalem." The authors argue that while in line with the anti-traditionalist theme of the poem, both films "distort" or transform that theme by emphasizing irony and by protesting England. The article also includes a brief history of "Jerusalem" and its relevance to British culture. 0 0
"The Tyger": Genesis & Evolution in the Poetry of William Blake Paul Miner Literary geneology Criticism English 1962 Paul Minor traces a literary genealogy of the The Tyger by tracing the inception of Blake's ideas in the Tyger, and placing the Tyger as a foundational for ideas subsequent works. Specifically, towards the end of the article, he argues for the distinction between two different ideologies embodied by the lamb and the tiger as emphasized in Christian allegory. He subsequently favors the tiger as a resolution, declaring that Blake "affirms the holiness of the tiger" (or "creation) and who "brings noctis irae" (73). 0 0
William Blake and Eudora Welty's Death of a Salesman John B. Vickery Allusion Modern Language Notes English 1961 Vickery claims that there are allusive parallels between the characters, setting, and themes of Welty's play and Blake's poetry. 0 0
