Event description

Description

The visionary poet and painter William Blake is a constant presence throughout contemporary culture – from videogames to novels, sporting events to political rallies. Although he died nearly 200 years ago, something about his work continues to haunt the twenty-first century. John Higgs takes us on a whirlwind tour to prove that Blake is now more relevant than ever, and that for all his mythological and visionary wildness, 'being human' is essentially what his work is about.
