Introduction Literature is art, an expression of the human mind, body, and soul, forged with skill, genius, and inspiration. When one comes upon holy literature art which is held sacred by some culture or group of people one finds that one's personal reaction to the art depends to a large extent on one's personal religious beliefs. The fundamental question the reader must ask is whether the text in question is holy to his or herself. The Old Testament of the Bible is accepted by a large percentage of Western civilization as holy as the Word of God. At the same time, in this age of science, Adam and Eve are largely seen as pure symbols, either of some ancient state of mankind in evolution, as psychological/mythical archetypes of the collective human mind, or as pure fictions, having little or no connection with either God or mankind in any real sense. It is one thing to read the first few books of the Bible as a symbolic representation of the creation of the universe and of the rise of man above the level of the animals, and against his brother. It is quite another thing to come across an interpretation of this text which accepts its events as literally true, then turns the entire scenario inside out.

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.
Encyclopaedia Britannica
(Biographie en français) "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

Songs of Innocence and Experience
When I began to study poetry fifty years ago a group of Americans called the New Critics were in the ascendant. A popular book representing their method at its best was The Well-Wrought Urn: Studies in the Structure of Poetry , by Cleanth Brooks, published in 1947. These critics developed a type of formal analysis which they tried to pass off as an objective academic discipline, though behind it lay a quasi-religious shared assumption about the relationship of art to life. They believed that art stood in opposition to life, or offered an alternative to life, providing the form and meaning which chaotic life lacked. In art man was in control and could aspire to a degree of perfection impossible in life, could create forms, for example, which would not be subject to time, decay and death. Each poem should aspire to such self-contained perfection, separate from and owing as little as possible to the world outside itself, like a well-wrought urn. Some poems responded well to this treatment, including poems by such then fashionable poets as Auden, Stevens and Empson. But the works of greater poets such as Donne, Keats, Hopkins or Yeats seemed to me to be reduced by it. It could not handle less formal verse such as Whitman's and Lawrence's. Confronted by simplicity it was dumbstruck. Their concept of a good poem was not mine. As Lawrence said, nature abhors the billiard ball, the perfect-unto-itself sealed monad, the closed system. I did not want poems to be self-contained and self-referential. On the contrary, I wanted them to release their energies into the mind and feelings of the reader, and to relate to as much of the world outside themselves as possible.

Blake's Poetry

Blake's Life and Times

William Blake and English Poetry
Blake the Artist

Blake's work can be difficult at times, mainly because the reader is offered Blake's visions in Blake's own terms. Blake draws on a highly powerful, but essentially personal, mythological system of his own devising, but one that also draws on a variety of mythological, poetic and philosophical sources. On this, Blake himself remarked that he had to "create a System, or be enslav'd by another Man's." In part also, what Blake seeks to express can only be presented in terms of vague abstractions and allusions, with a cosmic perspective on issues of faith, religion, philosophy and belief, and this must also mean that the reader has to work hard. Yet the effort is worth it. Blake is a revolutionary and visionary artist and poet, and his work represented a decisively new direction in the course of English Poetry and the Visual Arts.
Blake's works range from the deceptively simple and lyrical style of the Songs of Innocence and Experience , through speculative works such as The Marriage of Heaven and Hell , to the highly elaborate visionary and apocalyptic style of America The Four Zoas Milton and The Book of Urizen . In this Helpfile I have tried to represent each of these styles, although inevitably the longer works have had to be presented in abbreviated form. Shorter poems are presented with brief commentaries, but the longer pieces have an accompanying page of introductory notes. There are also brief accounts of 'Blake's Life and Times', 'Blake the Artist', 'Blake and English Poetry', and on 'Blake's Thought'. Please browse through in any way which you find helpful.

The William Blake Page
William Blake
(b. Nov. 28, 1757, Londond. Aug. 12, 1827, London) was the first of the great English Romantic poets, as well as a painter and printer and one of the greatest engravers in English history. Largely self-taught, he began writing poetry when he was twelve and was apprenticed to a London engraver at the age of fourteen. His poetry and visual art are inextricably linked. To fully appreciate one you must see it in context with the other.
A rebel all of his life, Blake was once arrested on a trumped up charge of sedition. Of course, he was a complete sympathizer with the forces of revolution, both in America and France. He was a personal friend of Thomas Paine and made the American War of Independence and French Revolution parts of his grand mythology in his America: A Prophecy and Europe: A Prophecy.
Blake is frequently referred to as a mystic, but this is not really accurate. He deliberately wrote in the style of the Hebrew prophets and apocalyptic writers. He envisioned his works as expressions of prophecy, following in the footsteps (or, more precisely strapping on the sandals) of Elijah and Milton. In fact, he clearly believed himself to be the living embodiment of the spirit of Milton.
Most of Blake's paintings (such as "The Ancient of Days" above, the frontispiece to

Blake, William
From Enlightenment Revolution
Jump to: navigation search Blake, William (1757-1827): English Poet and Artist. William Blake was an early Romantic writer and engraver. Though he died in relative obscurity, estimation of Blake began to increase in the late nineteenth century until he gained his present reputation as a premiere poet and visionary for the Romantic period. Blake's typically pious upbringing was influenced by mystic visions of angels. His life as a native Londoner, combined with his dissatisfaction with contemporary poetic and artistic productions, led to the production of innovative poetry, produced using equally original techniques of artistic engraving. Similarly dissatisfied with the major religious systems of his day, Blake’s mature work includes the production of his own comprehensive theological system. Though his direct influence on his contemporaries is uncertain, today he is nonetheless considered a major figure of the English Romantic movement. As a youth, Blake trained as a draughtsman, then as an engraver, and early in life had intentions of a career as a painter. Though he was, in one sense, a devoted scholar—voraciously reading books of his own choosing—he never received any formal literary education. In Blake’s early childhood, he experienced mystic visions of angels and other phenomena, which would exert a clear influence on his future work. In 1782, Blake married Catherine Boucher, the uneducated daughter of a market gardener. Blake’s poetry, relating the possessive and demanding character of the feminine will, suggests that the marriage, which was childless, was also troubled. The death of Blake's brother Robert, in 1787, likely inspired him to further mysticism, and he was influenced as well by the writings of mystic theologian

The Anti-Teleological Dialogism of the Imagination in William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell
Steven M. Streufert
A Project Presented to The Faculty of Humboldt State University
In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree Master of Arts
May 1997
In the poetic theory of William Blake, the act of creation requires a type of visionary activity quite beyond the ordinary, especially if that creativity is to be powerfully original and revolutionary. In the classic Romantic view of the role of art and the functioning of the artistic personality, imagination is epistemologically centrala philosophy and method which Blake was quite in advance of his time in formulating for himself at the tail end of the 18th Century "Enlightenment" of reason. There must be, in this anti-rationalist theory of the mind, a certain unmoored willingness to experience the horror and beauty of the sublime, of that which goes beyond the common norms of awareness and experience, and which springs from unseen sources at the roots of being. This functioning of the creative mind, later characterized finely by the French poet, Rimbaud, as the derangement or disordering of the perceptive faculties in order to allow for real vision (

78. William Blake (1757-1827)
Notes on the life of the artist.
William Blake (1757-1827)
'William Blake is distinct, and stands alone' - Walter Crane The visionary painter and poet William Blake was born in London and sent as a boy to the Paris Drawing School in the Strand. When aged 14, he was apprenticed to James Basire, an engraver, for whom he worked until age 20. He then studied in the RA Schools, and started illustration work. He marrried Catherine Boucher in 1782. In 1784 he was able to set up his own shop to sell prints, and began to publish the long series of books of his own text and drawings. He was his own calligrapher, illuminator and miniaturist, and poet. His first book was The Songs of Innocence . He lived in Felpham, Sussex from 1800-1804, but otherwise resided in London for the rest of his life. Blake had many followers, including Edward Calvert and Samuel Palmer. As well, Blake's work was a great source of inspiration to Rossetti and the Pre-Raphaelites . In his books he was the first to combine text and illustrations in an organic, harmonious manner in a mass produced book, achieving an almost medieval effect. Therefore he was the precursor of the enthusiastic page designs of 19th Century artists such as Walter Crane and William Morris . His technique of working with the line alone, in keeping with the nature of the material (wood), rather than trying to imitate other techniques by using cross-hatching or other shading effects, was revived by, among others, the
