Considered a madman by his contemporaries his work received little attention while he was alive and for decades after his death. To Symbolists and neo-Romantics, however, Blake is a transcendent figure… Above - James Deville: Plaster cast of William Blake’s head, published 1823 (National Portrait Gallery, London)

"Labour is blossoming or dancing where/   The body is not bruised to pleasure soul./   Nor beauty born out of its own despair,   Nor blear-eyed wisdom out of midnight oil./  O chestnut-tree, great-rooted blossomer,/ Are you the leaf, the blossom or the bole?/ O body swayed to music, O brightening glance,/  How can we know the dancer from the dance?"  - WB Yeats
