In a career that spanned a turbulent era in European history, William Blake (1757-1827) produced one of the most celebrated and intense bodies of works in the history of art. Neglected and misunderstood in his lifetime, his extraordinary paintings, poetry, and prints now enjoy an international reputation. Technically innovative, strikingly original, and high personal in their symbolism, his images are both powerfully immediate in their effects and challenging in their complexity. His visual interpretations of the Bible and the poetry of Milton and Dante demonstrate a fervid invention and a searching intellect that have entranced generations of admirers.

n this exceptional work, produced as part of a series of literary biographies throughout the 1920s, author G.K. Chesterton directly addresses the question of whether William Blake's genius was tainted by mental illness or whether part of the key to his success was his idiosyncratic perspective.An impressive chronicler of Blake's life, Chesterton weaves well-reasoned descriptions of Blake's unusual philosophy into a dialogue on his work, producing a remarkably sensitive biography of one of the towering figures of world literature.AUTHOR BIO: Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) was born in London. Though he considered himself a mere "rollicking journalist," he was a prolific and gifted writer in virtually every area of literature. A man of strong opinions, and enormously talented at defending them, he possessed an exuberant personality that nevertheless allowed him to maintain warm friendships with such literary eminences as George Bernard Shaw and H.G. Wells�with whom he often vehemently disagreed. During his life he published nearly 70 books, and at least another ten have been published since his death in 1936.

One of the sub texts of Blake is to show the difference between the realities of Slavery and the picture Stowe painted in Uncle Tom. Indeed, Daleny's hero Henry Blake is placed in the exact same place time and position as Uncle Tom, but instead of heroically suffering and dying and inspiring while refusing to physically resist slavery, Henry Blake runs away from slavery to organize an international revolution against slavery.
