William Blake

 
William Blake (1757-1827) was an astonishingly creative person. We know him for his mystical poetry, his unusual paintings and his printmaking inventions. Although he lived in London for almost his entire life, his imagination seems to have known no bounds. He revered the Bible but not the Church of England, and he had a private mythology full of very complex symbolism. Of all the Romantic writers, he is one of the least read relative to the powerful influence he has had, even on our own time.
