Willard's poems offer a bit of Blake's style, but entail flights of imagination more befitting Alice in Wonderland than William Blake.
Blake's Inn is intended as a metaphor for imagination itself. Its well structured poems encourage and engage one in wild flights of imagination. Characters such as a talking Rabbit, a Wise Cow, and the Man with the Marmalade Hat inhabit the Inn, and take trips among the stars. Willard's approach suggests the pinnacle of imagination is absurdity, in language and perspective. VM finds this Alice in Wonderland approach represents neither Blake, nor good poetry. Given its awards and academic approval, this requires a thorough Full Review.
