Unlike earlier biographers, King stresses the close connection between Blake the man and the mystical and symbolical worlds he created. He also places Blake (1757-1827) against the literary-artistic backdrop of his time, exploring his dealings with John Flaxman, Henry Fuseli, Thomas Stothard, Thomas Butts, William Haley, Robert Cromek, John Linnell, and Samuel Palmer. Includes eight pages of b&w plates and 45 illustrations in the text. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
