William Blake: A Complete Artist

Posted on

William Blake, a Poet and an Artist, was one of the largely unacknowledged artist of his era but now he is one of Britain’s most celebrated artist. He is known to be from the “Romantic Age” era and has composed many many beautiful pieces of art works( whether poems or visual art).

I’ve been a fan of his poetry lately and few of my favourites are, The Chimney Sweeper, The Little Black boy, The Divine Image, The Earths Answer, The Eternity and so on. I’ve written down a few of them below for your perusal. Not many poets have the power to attract and capture the fellow art lovers in their philosophical interpretations through the use of mere words in form of poetry but William Blake definitely has this skill.

He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity’s sun rise.

A Divine Image
Cruelty has a human heart,
And Jealousy a human face;
Terror the human form divine,
And Secresy the human dress.

The human dress is forged iron,
The human form a fiery forge,
The human face a furnace sealed,
The human heart its hungry gorge.

Happy Writing!

  2. I never read any of Blake’s works but I surely will! I love Shakespeare, I really do. Especially his sonnets and the play “Hamlet”.

    • Thanks for commenting. You should go through William Blake’s works atleast once, they are just mesmerizing. Many of the poems bring back some nostalgic memories of my childhood. you will just love it.
