  • A William Blake primer

    William Blake Artist/Poet - b. 11/28/1757, d.1827 in Soho district, London

    Left ordinary school at 10 years to join drawing school, at 15 became an apprentice to a master engraver. Afterwards, in 1770 entered the Royal Academy, but was far ahead of his time. Made his living as a journeyman engraver.

    A Sample:

    The Voice of the Ancient Bard

    Youth of delight come hither,
    And see the opening morn,
    Image of truth new born.
    Doubt is fled & clouds of reason,
    Dark disputes and artful teazing.
    Folly is an endless maze.
    Tangled roots perplex her ways,
    How many have fallen there!
    They stumble all night over bones of the dead:
    And feel they know not what but care:
    And wish to lead others when they should be led.

    From Songs of Experience, 1794
