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.
"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)
