William Blake was disregarded in his lifetime by the public in favor of more popular writers and richer artists. Today, he is taught in nearly every university English Literature class. This book goes a long way in explaining why this is true.
First of all, Blake was deeply affected by his personal relationship with Jesus Christ and his worship of God. It permeates his poetry and his paintings. In the Age of Reason, romantic poets who seemed 'old fashioned' were easily ignored. Blake made a living as a printer and envisioned angels perched in trees in his yard.
Nowadays some would have Blake himself in those trees but he needs to be remembered as a mortal being who simply produced inspired literature at a high level. As a picture of early 19th century England and an icon of the literary and the artistic world, this book plays on many levels.

After seeing "Dead Man" with Johnny Depp, I wanted a Blake speed-read and this did the job. It's academic but accessible.
