William Blake (28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827) was an English poet, painter, and engraver. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake is a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age. He lived in London almost his entire life, and produced a diverse and symbolically rich corpus. His most well-known and best loved works includes numerous watercolors and illustrations and of course, his written works that produced such stirring verse as The Tyger and the hymn Jerusalem.
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
