This illustrated biography of William Blake, the great English artist, poet and mystic, seeks to encompass virtually everything that is known of his life and times. Often invoking the words of Blake's own contemporaries, G.E. Bentley describes the struggles of Blake's youth, his gradual embrace of the power of the spirit and visionary art and literature, and the serenity he achieved in his old age.
