William Blake

William Blake (1757-1827) was an English poet, printmaker and mystic.

NOTABLE EXCERPTS:

-AUGURIES OF INNOCENCE (1803, from the Pickering manuscript) :

“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour”
(Similar to Shakespeare’s Hamlet: “O God, I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself a king of infinite space”)
