Prophet, poet, painter and engraver -- Blake's uniqueness lies in no single achievement, but in the whole of what he was, which is more than the sum of all that he did. So writes Kathleen Raine in this classic study of William Blake, a man for whom the arts were not an end in themselves, but expressed his vision of the spiritual drama of the English national being. Profusely illustrated, this volume presents a comprehensive view of Blake's artistic achievements and a compelling and moving portrait of the life and thought of an extraordinary genius.

About the Author:

Kathleen Raine (1908-2003) was a British poet and critic.  She loved Blake throughout her long and distinguished literary career, and her A.W. Mellon Lectures in Washington in 1962, which became the basis of her two-volume study Blake and Tradition (1968), played a vital part in establishing that Blake, previously known mainly as a self-taught eccentric, belongs to a long and coherent tradition of Platonic, hermetic, and mystical thought.
