Fine in fine dust jacket. In this first genuinely new account of William Blake's life since 1927, the author focuses on the enormous contradictions and complexities of Blake's personality. He examines the poet-artist's deeply divided feelings about sexuality, as well as his erotic imagination. King shows how these and other contradictions formed a unique vision which led Blake to create his own philosophy and mythology. illustrated throughout.
