This is a brief account of Blake’s life. The main story is quickly told, but the intricacies of his friendships and quarrels, slights received and given, commissions, hopes and failures in his art, admirers and detractors, and so on, are very complicated and would take more space than this chapter affords. Full-length biographies make fascinating reading, and three of these are mentioned in Further Reading at the end of this book.
