"To see the world in a grain of sand/and heaven in a wild flower"...Blake's poetry does just that. Using powerful imagery and uncompromising language it opens doors of perception within the mind, expanding our understanding of the way the world connects. Blake's use of compressed imagery, his play with evocative words, pushes the barriers of convention and acceptability in order to take his readers through the very same dark halls of the imagination he inhabits. In Ancient of Days editor Roy Taylor selects just 13 of the most powerful poems Blake's ever written to provide an illuminating insight into the mind of one of English poetry's most enduring figures.
