William Blake, being a sort of victim of the Industrial Revolution …..was a great poet, a great songwriter an activist, a philosopher a visionary. He have us beautiful books, paintings, ideology – and yet William Blake in his life was never appreciated. He had no real succes. He was often ridiculed. He died poverty-stricken,but he also died full of joy. He never let go the language of enthusiasm . So I try to remember now when I feel sorry for myself to give a little thought of William Blake.
