About this title


For hundreds of years, people have referred to Catherine Blake as "the wife of William Blake," his helpmate, beloved, and the one who kept him sane. Born to a family of market gardeners, she was illiterate when they married. William taught her to read and write, and in time she worked with him, hand-coloring prints and pages of his illuminated books and sometimes operating their printing press. Using William Blake's artworks, poetry, and letters, plus a great deal of researched material from the period, Lachman has created the first biography of this intriguing woman.

About the Author:

Barbara Lachman's first two book were about the 12th-century Benedictine abbess, composer, and visionary---Hildegard of Bingen. Their titles are "The Journal of Hildegard of Bingen" (Bell Tower, 1993 and pbk 1995)and "Hildegard, the Last Year" (Shambhala, 1997). She lives in Lexington, Virginia where she teaches music history, world religions, and the Alexander Technique.
