William Blake vs the World

John Higgs

'If a thing loves, it is infinite.' Celebrate what one artist can do in a lifetime with this immersive exploration of the artist's work, philosophy and imagination in a beautiful setting with writer, novelist, journalist and cultural historian John Higgs. Dismissed and misinterpreted when alive, yet Blake now is a rare animal - an inclusive symbol of English identity. Thanks to the work of neuroscientists and psychologists, we are now in a better position to understand what was happening inside that remarkable mind, and we will ultimately discover that it is Blake who helps us to understand ourselves.
