Blake's Contraries Game

The essay reads William Blake's Songs of Innocence and of Experience as kind of game, showing how it shares qualities of modern computer and video games such as virtual immersion, multimedia, interaction, and agency. Accompanying the essay is a digital, upgraded, interactive version of Blake's original game called "Contraries 2.0," which can be played by scholars in ways similar to McGann and Drucker's IVANHOE game.
