'If a thing loves, it is infinite' William Blake

A short, impassioned argument for why the visionary artist William Blake is important in the twenty-first century

The visionary poet and painter William Blake is a constant presence throughout contemporary culture - from videogames to novels, from sporting events to political rallies and from horror films to designer fashion.

In this illuminating essay, John Higgs takes us on a whirlwind tour to prove that far from being the mere New Age counterculture figure that many assume him to be, Blake is now more relevant than ever.

“A visionary pamphlet on a visionary poet”

Higgs' essay (pamphlet? Polemic?) is a brief and brilliant one; as a defence of Blake, rather than going for high culture, for snobbery, for a call back to the attitudes of the past, instead, Higgs talks about... More
