Acknowledgements for the paper 4:
This thesis would not come into being if I had not received help from mysupervisor, teachers, classmates, and family. They offered me so much encouragement, without which I could have already given up. But before I express my sincerestgratitude to them, I would thank my God. It was always He who first came to help mewhen my faith was influenced by Blake's unorthodox theological thinking. Again itwas He who gave me wisdom and patience to do whatever I did for his glory.
"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might." (NIV, Ecclesiastes 9:10) And here is the prayer when I was in the valley of despair: "May the favor of the Lordour God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us-yes, establish the work of our hands. "(Psalm 91:17) It is His faithfulness and unfailing love that urged me towrite the thesis with all my might.
My supervisor Xu Xiaodong did offer me so much help that I feel so grateful tohim. He has lent me over thirty valuable monographs, biographies, anthologies, and collections of essays. Nearly all of the books were bought from abroad at his ownexpense. His fervent love for literature, his relentless pursuit of knowledge, and hismeticulous attitude towards research manifest the personalities and qualities I shouldcultivate as a qualified scholar. Whenever I sent him an article he always gave meprecious suggestions that really improved my critical thinking a lot. For many times Ifailed to keep my promise, he forgave me and kept encouraging me to pursue mystudies. I give my most genuinely gratitude to him for his generous help.
Besides my supervisor, I have benefited from many other teachers. Prof. ZhangRuwen, Prof. Yi Jianhong, Prof. Jiang Yuebin, Sun Jiurong and Wei Lina, they havetaught me many critical approaches and broadened the scope of my knowledge invarious fields of literature. Moreover, I would like to extend my gratitude to myclassmates and roommates. They taught me how to balance study and rest. I alsothank my family, especially my sister, who came to my school many times to visit me.
Her support and comfort gave me much strength.
Lastly my gratitude would be expressed to Charles Gardner, Paul Berger, HelenC. White, Maung Ba-han, S. Foster Damon, JG Davies. Even though some of themhave gone to the land where no traveler returns back, their results of years of researchwill be passed down to future generations. Without their researches, students ofWilliam Blake would fumble many more years in the mystical land of the mystic-poet.
William Ralph Inge, Miss Evelyn Underhill, Emily Herman, Joseph B. Collins, without whose systematic exploration of mysticism I would be totally at loss in thevast ocean of this particular human experience.
I would like to express my sincere and deep gratitude to my supervisor, ProfessorSun Jisheng, for her inspiring instructions, earnest encouragement and great patienceshe has offered to me. I was especially touched and encouraged to have her detailedcomments and suggestions when revising the thesis. What's more, I learned from herthe spirit of rigorous scholarship in my contact with her in the past several months.
Without her supervision and instruction, I would not have been able to complete thisthesis.
I would also like to extend my gratitude to the other professors of China ForeignAffairs University during my two-year postgraduate study there. Their instructivelectures have provided me with an enjoyable and profitable learning experience at CFAU, which has greatly improved my academic interest and ability.
I also owe my gratitude to my colleagues in the Ministry of Foreign Affairswhere I work. My gratitude also goes to my department for the support to this learning journey.
My heartfelt thanks also go to my wife and my daughter, who have always supporteded me during my postgraduate learning, preparation for national qualification exams and this thesis writing. Their love and smile every day are the most valuablethings to me on this journey.
