Group Description

This is a moderated group devoted to the study of the life and work of William Blake (1757-1827), London artist, poet, visionary, and dissenter. We welcome all points of view and expect a diversity of opinions and approaches to Blake and his works. Discussion should be focused on Blake's life, friends, influences, contemporaries, art, and literature as well as the relevance of his religion, ideas and philosopy in its historical context and in the present.

This group will be moderated. Spammers will be banned. Blake-related advertisements or promotion of Blake-related events are welcome.

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the Holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?
And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among those dark Satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold!
Bring me my arrows of desire!
Bring me my spear! O clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of Fire!
I will not cease from mental fight;
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land.

(from Blake's "Milton")
