The English poet, illustrator, philosopher and visionary, William Blake, has never been more loved. His social comment, creative knack and quotable verse have proven irresistible. And yet for all the fascination and adulation, he is rarely read as he hoped. 

He promises to cleanse the doors of perception so that others might follow him and step into the domain he called Eternity. He provides a way to an utterly changed view of reality, which his works are designed to precipitate.

This study day with Mark Vernon offers a way into his often deliberately taxing imagery and confusing poetry. It will engage with his precise analysis or modern ills, as well as his initiatory mythology, to foster the awakening he yearned to stir. It introduces the active delights of what emerges when, single vision and Newton’s sleep confronted, eternity’s sunrise dawns in our minds.
