Description: William Blake (1757 - 1827) is one of the great figures in literature, by turns poet, artist and visonary. Profoundly libertarian in outlook, Blake's engagement with the issues of his day is well known and this - along with his own idiosynratic concerns - flows through his poetry and art. Like Milton before him, the prodigality of his allusions and references is little short of astonishing. As the 250th anniversary of his birth approaches, Blake has perhaps more readers than ever before Blake: The Complete Poems will stand those readers, new and old, in good stead for many years to come.
