William Blake

(1757 - 1827)

The poet William Blake beheld his first vision at the age of four when he saw the face of God appear in a window. Shunned by London literary and ecclesiastical society, he pursued his discoveries of the divinity of nature while earning his living as an engraver.

Some are born to sweet delight,
Some are born to endless night.
