“Art’s task is to save the soul of mankind” ~ William Blake

A wonderful surrealist art video on the poetry of William Blake, including music by the Verve, and recitations by British actors, Mark Rylance and Derek Jacobi, as well as animation from the 1970’s London Tate William Blake Exhibition.

William Blake (1757 – 1827) was an English poet, painter, and printmaker. Largely unrecognized during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age.

Considered mad by contemporaries for his idiosyncratic views, Blake is held in high regard by later critics for his expressiveness and creativity, and for the philosophical and mystical undercurrents within his work.

His most famous works include Songs of Innocence and of Experience, All Religions are One and The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.
