28. April 2015 · Comments Off on Geoffrey Ashe on Blake and Albion · Categories: Podcasts

Geoffrey Ashe is considered by many to be the premier Arthurian scholar in the world today. He is a writer and lecturer specialising in early British history and mythology and in particular the legends of Glastonbury. His numerous works include ‘Mythology of the British Isles’ and ‘The Discovery of King Arthur’. He was co-founder and Secretary of the Camelot Research Committee, the group responsible for the excavation of Cadbury Castle (a strong candidate for the site of King Arthur’s Camelot) and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

The talk focussed on his remarkable exploration of Blake and Albion, the key figure in the poet’s later prophetic work, and what his ‘awakening’ might involve. The event also celebrated the launch of the republication of Ashe’s classic work on the subject, ‘Camelot and the Vision of Albion’ (Karnac Books).
