    Back to Home Page or Contents Page or People or Index Blake, William (1757-1827)
    s one of the most curious and significant figures in the history od English literature, Blake is renown as a poet, mystic , painter and engraver. With these talents he influenced both literature and graphic arts. His mystical abilities appeared in childhood when he began experiencing visions of angels and spiritual monks, later on these visions included the Angel Gabriel, the Virgin Mary, and other historical figures. It might be thought, as so often happens, that his parents would have discouraged him from these thoughts, but they did not.
    His parents and relatives were of humble people. Although Blake is a common Irish name, the family's ancestry is dubious. Later the poet W. B. Yeats , an ardent devotee of Blake and editor of his literary works, would have it believed that Blake came directly from Irish ancestry, but this is contradicted by Martin J. Blake in his genealogical work, Blake Family Records
    Blake, born in London, spent most of his life there. Since his parents knew of his early visions they offered to help him to become a painter. Blake was attracted to the position but generously pointer out that such an apprenticeship would be costly, and such an expense would not be fair to his other brothers and sisters, since his father's income as a hosier was not a large one. He entered the apprenticeship as an engraver, not just that the training was less expensive, but also because the profession was likely to yield a faster return.

    Blake, William
    Blake, William (b. Nov. 28, 1757, Londond. Aug. 12, 1827, London)
    English poet, painter, engraver; one of the earliest and greatest figures of Romanticism . The most famous of Blake's lyrical poems is Auguries of Innocence , with its memorable opening stanza: To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour. (Biographie en franais) "I do not behold the outward creation... it is a hindrance and not action." Thus William Blakepainter, engraver, and poetexplained why his work was filled with religious visions rather than with subjects from everyday life. Few people in his time realized that Blake expressed these visions with a talent that approached genius. He lived in near poverty and died unrecognized. Today, however, Blake is acclaimed one of England's great figures of art and literature and one of the most inspired and original painters of his time. Blake was born on Nov. 28, 1757, in London. His father ran a hosiery shop. William, the third of five children, went to school only long enough to learn to read and write, and then he worked in the shop until he was 14. When he saw the boy's talent for drawing, Blake's father apprenticed him to an engraver. At 25 Blake married Catherine Boucher. He taught her to read and write and to help him in his work. They had no children. They worked together to produce an edition of Blake's poems and drawings, called

    William Blake (1757-1827) , English artist, mystic and poet wrote Songs of Innocence (1789): a poetry collection written from the childs point of view, of innocent wonderment and spontaneity in natural settings which includes Little Boy Lost, Little Boy Found and The Lamb; Little lamb, who made thee?
    Dost thou know who made thee?
    Gave thee life, and bid thee feed
    By the stream and o'er the mead; Gave thee clothing of delight, Softest clothing, woolly, bright; Gave thee such a tender voice, Making all the vales rejoice? Little lamb, who made thee? Dost thou know who made thee? Songs of Experience (1794) contains many poems in response to ones from Innocence , suggesting ironic contrasts as the child matures and learns of such concepts as fear and envy. For example, to The Lamb comes the predatory The Tyger;

    In 1782, he married an illiterate woman named Catherine Boucher. Blake taught her to read and to write, and also instructed her in draftsmanship. Later, she helped him print the illuminated poetry for which he is remembered today; the couple had no children. In 1784 he set up a printshop with a friend and former fellow apprentice, James Parker, but this venture failed after several years. For the remainder of his life, Blake made a meager living as an engraver and illustrator for books and magazines. In addition to his wife, Blake also began training his younger brother Robert in drawing, painting, and engraving. Robert fell ill during the winter of 1787 and succumbed, probably to consumption. As Robert died, Blake saw his brother's spirit rise up through the ceiling, "clapping its hands for joy." He believed that Robert's spirit continued to visit him and later claimed that in a dream Robert taught him the printing method that he used in Songs of Innocence and other "illuminated" works.

His prophetic poetry has been said to form "what is in proportion to its merits the least read body of poetry in the English language". His visual artistry has led one contemporary art critic to proclaim him "far and away the greatest artist Britain has ever produced". Although he lived in London his entire life except for three years spent in Felpham he produced a diverse and symbolically rich corpus, which embraced the imagination as "the body of God"

    William Blake
    "To see a World in a grain of sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the Palm of your hand And Eternity in an Hour." from Auguries of Innocence William Blake was born on November 28, 1757 in London, the third of five children. His father James was a hosier, and could only afford to give William enough schooling to learn the basics of reading and writing, though for a short time he was able to attend a drawing school run by Henry Par. William worked in his father's shop until his talent for drawing became so obvious that he was apprenticed to engraver James Basire at age 14. He finished his apprenticeship at age 21, and set out to make his living as an engraver.

    At the forefront of the foreclosure crisis:
    Miami, Fla., March 2, 2009 According to Thompson, lenders initiated foreclosure proceedings on more than 2.3M properties across the nation in 2008, and the number is expected to grow significantly through 2009. “Vacant commercial and residential properties are an easy target for vandals and thieves," said Thompson, who began his law enforcement career as a deputy sheriff in 1972 and rose to the third highest position in the FBI. “The Insignia Surveillance System will provide an extra measure of protection against preventable crimes," Thompson adds. Blake William Property Management, with the use of this innovative Insignia Surveillance System, is now delivering a cost-effective easy-to-install solution. While the technology is advanced, the benefits are simple: protect bank-owned assets and foster stability in our communities. Unlike expensive hard-wired alarm systems, which require properties to have power and a phone line hookup, the Insignia Surveillance System runs off its own power source. Utilizing readily available camera sensor and GPS tracking technologies, the system broadcasts information directly to the customer and/or a third party data center via wireless broadband. If field service is required, the unit sends out a signal requesting it. A primary Insignia Surveillance System designed to protect assets for securitized loans leases for $350 per month with a minimum 3-month contract required for activation. Additional sensors, cameras and monitoring features are subscribed to ala carte.

    Biography and sample illustrations.
    art channel William BLAKE
    William Blake was born in 1757, the third son of a London hosier. Apart from a brief idyllic sojourn to Felpham, West Sussex, Blake lived in or near to London, a city which dominates much of his work, whether as the nightmare 'London' of the Songs of Experience, or the London which Blake saw as the 'New Jerusalem', the kingdom of God on earth. Blake's subsequent career as an artist was inaugurated by his apprenticeship, in 1771, to James Basire, a noted Engraver, after which he enrolled as a student at the Royal Academy (1797), an Academy then dominated by the influence of its Principal, Sir Joshua Reynolds. From 1779 he was employed as an engraver for a local Bookseller, and Blake continued to earn an often precarious living from contracted engraving until, with the help of his friend John Flaxman (1755-1826), he was able to set up his own engraving business at 27 Broad Street, which proved not to be a successful enterprise. It is from this point, 1784, that Blake's career as an engraver-poet-prophet began in earnest. Working with the help of his dedicated wife Catherine Boucher (the daughter of a market gardener, whom he married in 1782), Blake divided his time between composing and engraving illustrated poetry, and eking out a precarious living as a contract engraver. His first works in illustrated painting - All Religions Are One and There is No Natural Religion (1788) - followed on from the satirical verse of An Island in the Moon (1784-5), but it was in 1789, the year of the French Revolution and the Storming of the Bastille, that saw Blake's early masterpieces, The Book of Thel and Songs of Innocence.

    William Blake wrote during the Romantic period which between 1785 - 1830. Some said that the Romantic period was the fairy tale way of writing through symbolism and allegory and also an age for individualism. Blake was little known as a poet during his lifetime. His reputation became established late in the 19th century. Blake’s first book of poems was Poetical Sketches. Blake was said to write symbolist poetry in which things such as a cloud, a flower, or a mountain was presented as an object represent with significance beyond itself. In comparison to Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience there is a distinction between the imagined states of innocence and experience is stated as thus: world of innocence: unfallen world/ unified self/ integration with nature/ time in harmony with rhythm of human existence. world of experience: fallen world/ fragmented divided self/ alienation from nature/ time as destructive, in opposition of human desire (Feldman). This can be seen in “The Lamb,” and “The Chimney Sweeper;” from Songs of Innocence and in Songs of Experience “The Tyger”. Blake along with other poets explored visionary states of consciousness that are common among children but violate the stand
