Spector, Sheila A.

Sheila A. Spector, recipient of the Carl H. Pforzheimer, Jr. Research Grant, awarded by the Keats-Shelley Association of America, is an independent scholar who has devoted her professional career to exploring the intersection between the British and Jewish cultures, primarily during the Romantic Period. She has approached the subject in a number of ways: bibliographically, compiling Jewish Mysticism: An Annotated Bibliography on the Kabbalah in English; critically, writing a two-part study of Blake as a Kabbalist—“Glorious incomprehensible”: The Development of Blake’s Kabbalistic Language, and “Wonders Divine”: The Development of Blake’s Kabbalistic Myth; and collaboratively, collecting two volumes of original essays by major scholars—British Romanticism and the Jews: History, Culture, Literature, and The Jews and British Romanticism: Politics, Religion, Culture.
