Bio: William Blake was an English poet, painter, and printmaker. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age. His prophetic poetry has been said to form what is in proportion to its merits the least read body of poetry in the English language.

Quote of the day

A gentleman is one who understands and shows every mark of deference to the claims of self-love in others, and exacts it in return from them.
