Now in paperback, this is the most comprehensive attempt to portray the spiritual life and philosophy of the great English artist, poet and visionary William Blake. Blake is of course famous for his poems, including the great hymn Jerusalem, and his iconic paintings, but people have found it hard to get to grips with his esoteric beliefs. Tobias Churton is one of the UK’s leading scholars of western esotericism and there’s much we can learn from this well-researched and entertaining account, which uses previously unseen documents to shed light on his perspectives. Michael Eavis, founder of the Glastonbury Festival, calls this “one of the most illuminating and enlightening biographies to date”.
