The Real Life of William BlakeBook - 2014
Delving into the spiritual side of one the Romantic period's most renowned artists and poets, this biography explores for the first time the deeper meanings and enlightened thoughts that sit at the heart of Blake's trademark symbolism. It's hard to believe that Blake was largely unrecognized in his own time, today we can look back and see the influence that his visionary words and images had on our most recent culture history. Resonating most strongly during times of change we last saw a resurgence of Blake's influence during the 60s in the inspiring music of the Doors or Jimi Hendrix and the enlightening words of Aldous Huxley. Now as we once again face massive change in the world, it's time to open our minds to the real William Blake, a revolutionary spiritual guru who can bring us right into the heart of our own true being.
