This classic biography - originally published in 1863 - was the first full-length study of Blake. The author offers thoughtful critical commentary on the poets works, from his childhood poetry to such later masterpieces as "Songs of Innocence" and "Songs of Experience, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, The Book of Urizen, Inventions to the Book of Job" and many more. The book covers the facts of Blake's life: his childhood, years as an engraver's apprentice and student life, relationships with patrons and employers, his trial for treason, his "madness, " neglect by the public, declining health and ultimately death.
