This version of Blake is without any doubt an edition to be welcomed, and will be cited as the principal text in the foreseeable future.--Eric Sundquist, Johns Hopkins University
Martin Delany's Blake is a fascinating novel. I've been waiting for a long while for a reliable edition, and Jerome McGann has produced it.--Robert Levine, University of Maryland
An American literary classic most Americans have never heard of...The actual novel itself is unapologetically didactic, its characters mainly acting as mouthpieces for the author's polemics--but those polemics possess a startling directness that makes a 21st-century reading of this fully-restored Blake as arresting as its original readers must have found it.--Steve Donoghue"Christian Science Monitor" (02/20/2017)
McGann has done a painstaking job of recovering the work, providing scrupulous editing, an excellent introduction, and copious notes that will undoubtedly draw added critical attention to the novel...Largely owing to its historical significance, this edition will be of most interest to scholars.--L. J. Parascandola"Library Journal" (02/15/2017)
