William Blake, né le 28 novembre 1757 à Londres où il est mort le 12 août 1827, est un artiste peintre, graveur et poète pré-romantique britannique.

Bien que considéré comme peintre — il a peint quelques tableaux à l'huile, préférant l'aquarelle et le dessin, voire la gravure et la lithographie —, il s'est surtout consacré à la poésie. Il est l'auteur d'une œuvre inspirée de visions bibliques à caractère prophétique. Son style halluciné est moderne et le distingue de ses pairs, bien que ses thèmes soient classiques.

„Thy heaven doors are my hell gates.“

—  William Blake
Context: The vision of Christ that thou dost see Is my vision's greatest enemy. Thine has a great hook nose like thine; Mine has a snub nose like to mine. Thine is the Friend of all Mankind; Mine speaks in parables to the blind. Thine loves the same world that mine hates; Thy heaven doors are my hell gates.

„If He had been Antichrist, Creeping Jesus,
He’d have done anything to please us“

—  William Blake
Context: If He had been Antichrist, Creeping Jesus, He’d have done anything to please us; Gone sneaking into synagogues, And not us’d the Elders and Priests like dogs; But humble as a lamb or ass Obey’d Himself to Caiaphas.

„The vision of Christ that thou dost see
Is my vision's greatest enemy.“

—  William Blake
Context: The vision of Christ that thou dost see Is my vision's greatest enemy. Thine has a great hook nose like thine; Mine has a snub nose like to mine. Thine is the Friend of all Mankind; Mine speaks in parables to the blind. Thine loves the same world that mine hates; Thy heaven doors are my hell gates.

„But to the Eyes of the Man of Imagination, Nature is Imagination itself. As a man is, So he Sees. As the Eye is formed, such are its Powers.“

—  William Blake
Context: To the Eyes of a Miser a Guinea is more beautiful than the Sun & and a bag worn with the use of Money has more beautiful proportions than a Vine filled with Grapes. The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the Eyes of others only a Green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all Ridicule and Deformity, and by these I shall not regulate my proportions; and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the Eyes of the Man of Imagination, Nature is Imagination itself. As a man is, So he Sees. As the Eye is formed, such are its Powers..
