Abstract: "Blake's Job, Adventures in Becoming" by Jason Wright is a book that combines the author's passion for poet William Blake, his work with addicts, and his vision of psychotherapy within modern scientific thought. The book explores Wright's personal experiences and his relationship with people and place, including the social traumas of the 2005 London bombings. Wright draws inspiration from various theorists to argue that we should see ourselves as a participatory component in a wider process of becoming. The book uses Blake's Job as a framework to illustrate the journey of psychotherapy and addiction recovery, and sets Blake's work within a Jungian context. While the book may be challenging at times, it offers valuable insights for those interested in Blake's writings and the philosophy of recovery. [Extracted from the article]
