Greater London, England
Death: Aug. 12, 1827
Charing Cross
City of Westminster
Greater London, England

Poet, Artist and Engraver. Although he lived a life of near abject poverty, died in relative obscurity and was considered if not mad, then certainly eccentric be his contemporaries, history would prove him to be an immensely influential poet, artist and visionary. Blake was a study in contradictions and paradoxs: married but supported free love, devoutly religious while bordering on charges of heresy, supported revolutionaries, while sickened by actual violence. His most famous works were "Songs of Innocence" 1789, "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell" 1793 and "Songs of Experience" 1794, the last of which including his most famous poem "The Tyger." He went on to inspire writers, artists, free thinkers and musicians alike, right up to the present day, where he remains an epic figure in English literature and art. (bio by: morgannia)
