Weekend away was fairly productive:

read George Levine's How to Read the Victorian Novel, which was basic but a nice survey/reminder, and did not buy into the "the Victorian novel exists to uphold the conservative social order" trope which I find stifling.

read Peter Ackroyd's Blake biography, which is lavishly illustrated and makes me want to seek out more of Blake's art than just the illustrated books and illustrations I'm familiar with. Also picked up a Portable Blake used, though it is rather old fashioned in regularizing the spelling and etc. Will have to have the complete works sooner or later. Am looking forward to pulling out my copy of reproductions of all the Illuminated Books. (Also read a rather fluffy historical novel With Blake In, Burning Bright by Tracy Chevalier. Could have done with More Blake In.)
