Publicité

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.

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

„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..

„Emerged into the light of day; I still & shall to Eternity Embrace Christianity and Adore him who is the Express image of God“

— William Blake
Context: And now let me finish with assuring you that, Tho I have been very unhappy, I am so no longer. I am again. Emerged into the light of day; I still & shall to Eternity Embrace Christianity and Adore him who is the Express image of God; but I have travel'd thro' Perils & Darkness not unlike a Champion. I have Conquer'd, and shall still Go on Conquering. Nothing can withstand the fury of my Course among the Stars of God & in the Abysses of the Accuser. My Enthusiasm is still what it was, only Enlarged and conform'd. The Letters Of William Blake https://archive.org/details/lettersofwilliam002199mbp (1956), p. 74-75
