This is a companion resource to the Tate Britain's comprehensive exhibition of the work by the poet, printmaker, and visionary William Blake (1757-1827). William Blake Online introduces some of Blake's artistic and poetical works, his life story, and the London that he knew. Interactive features include specially commissioned recorded extracts from The Divine Comedy (Blake illustrated an edition), Jerusalem, and Songs of Innocence and of Experience; original engravings with pop-up notes; an e-dictionary of the major figures in his personal mythology; maps of Blake's London; and a summary and analysis of each poem. This is a fun introduction to the work and life of a truly original thinker.
