Michael Davis sets this peculiarity at the center of Blake's life and art. Blake was, Davis says, ""a man dedicated to giving bodily form to spiritual beings,"" and he achieved this through poetry, engravings, and paintings devoted to Biblical themes and his own mythology of Orc, Urizen, Los, Albion, and others, who represent passion, reason, imagination, mankind, and so forth. But, notwithstanding his arresting subtitle, Davis is more interested in the works than the man; hence his narrative of Blake's Life concerns mainly the sequence and circumstances of Blake's literary and artistic career, and includes extensive quotations from letters, as well as helpful explications of Blake's most obscure visionary poetry.

William Blake: A New Kind of Man. Berkeley: University of California Press, 1977. Most readable: a tremendously enthusiastic book that argues that Blake virtually loses control of what he's doing by the later books. Note the total absence of the normal documentation apparatus (footnotes and such). Readable-but under no circumstances to be trusted implicitly without reference to other biographies like the Ackroyd or the Wilson.

William Blake’s poem The French Revolution is probably the first British literary representation of the revolution in France. Blake wrote it in 1790 and 1791, that is, during the first phase of the revolution, without the benefit of any historical perspective. It is remarkable that even Voltaire and Rousseau still represent revolutionary ideas in this poem; it was only a few years later that Blake associated them with the Unholy Trinity : the rigid rationalism of Newton, Bacon and Locke.
