Inhaltsangabe: A biography of William Blake. Poet, painter, engraver, visionary, his was a radical spirit fired by genius. The book presents Blake in the context of his period: we see him caught up in the Gordon Riots, excited by the French Revolution and attracted by various forms of spiritual radicalism and sexual magic. Peter Ackroyd has also written "Dickens", a biography of Charles Dickens.

Rezension: "Marvellous...deeply moving and radiant with detail... What makes Ackroyd so exceptional among biographers is the range and beauty of his knowledge.This is a book to go out and buy at once" ( Observer)

"Exhilarating...has all the hypnotic power and psychological intensity of a dream-fiction" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Glowing and engaged...will send many readers back to the poems enriched" (John Carey Sunday Times)

"Taut, lucid and intelligent...will surely stand as a classic of the genre" ( Harpers & Queen)

A first-rate biography of an extraordinary man." --The Wall Street Journal "SUPERB . . . Ackroyd writes with clarity and ease: His book is consistently intelligent, entertaining and affectionate. One closes its pages full of admiration for Blake and eager to study his pictures and read his poetry. . . . Ackroyd emphasizes Blake the visionary Londoner, like Turner or Dickens, and convincingly relates the poet's work to the social upheavals of his time. . . . Above all, [he] makes Blake live for the modern reader." --The Washington Post Book World "LYRICAL AND ILLUMINATING . . . Ackroyd is a masterly storyteller and interpreter of Blake's writing and art." --Chicago Tribune "THE WORK OF A WRITER AT THE PEAK OF HIS LITERARY POWERS . . . It is one of the great strengths of Ackroyd's writing that he reminds us that every individual life and cast of mind has a tradition behind it, a context of other lives and minds which is half forgotten or not remembered at all. As a writer, he is always letting his bucket deeper and deeper down the historical well." --The New Yorker. Artikel-Nr. 72240AB
