William Blake’s highly personal messages of humanity and social conscience are as relevant today as in eighteenth-century London. Although Blake’s works were ignored or dismissed until long after his death, their directness and unsentimental simplicity will strike a chord with many today.

    " I go back and forth about Blake. At his best, he writes really, really good poetry (for instance, I love The Tiger). Other times I am not a fan of his poetry at all. In my opinion, when he tries really hard to be prophetic his poetry often get really distasteful. "

About the Author
Author William Blake

William Blake (1757–1827) was an English poet, artist, and printmaker. Although largely unrecognized during his lifetime, he is now considered a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age. He is held in high regard by critics for his expressiveness and creativity and for the philosophical and mystical undercurrents within his work. He produced a diverse and symbolically rich body of works that embraced the imagination as “the body of God” or “human existence itself.” Reverent of the Bible but hostile to the Church of England, he was influenced by the ideals and ambitions of the French and American revolutions, as well as by such thinkers as Emanuel Swedenborg.
