William Blake is one of Britain's best-loved poets, yet for much of his career he was either ignored or ridiculed. Drawing on a large body of unpublished letters and diaries, alongside books and pamphlets, this biography charts his development as a writer, an artist and a visionary. It reveals Blake's inner and outer struggles in a well-depicted Georgian London, dispensing with the 'eccentric genius' cliche in favour of a serious examination of his radical theology.
