Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Blake’s poetry presents a series of challenges for those reading it aloud because it ranges from the exuberant to the frightening. The use of three narrators in this audio anthology is a wise editorial decision, as it allows the poems to benefit from a broader range of voices.” AudioFile

Author Bio: William Blake

Author Bio: William Blake

William Blake (1757–1827) was an English poet, artist, and printmaker. Although largely unrecognized during his lifetime, he is now considered a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age. He is held in high regard by critics for his expressiveness and creativity and for the philosophical and mystical undercurrents within his work. He produced a diverse and symbolically rich body of works that embraced the imagination as “the body of God” or “human existence itself.” Reverent of the Bible but hostile to the Church of England, he was influenced by the ideals and ambitions of the French and American revolutions, as well as by such thinkers as Emanuel Swedenborg.
