Blake was a great painter, poet, and mystic who rejected science and reason and preferred using the powers of imagination in his quest for truth. Because of his psychological and visionary views, he was considered a forerunner to Freud and Jung. The visions he experienced came to him spontaneously, and much of his poetry was dictated from the spiritual realm. He grew up influenced by the mystic Swedenborg and his church. Some thought Blake to be utterly mad; others considered him a genius. One thing is certainthis biography will enrich those with an interest in the adventures of a unique man who spent his life as a spiritual pioneer.
