I grossly underappreciated Blake's poetry before I slogged through all of it. He's easy to write off based on a superficial reading of his "Songs of Innocence and Experience." But it's the development of his thought and writing that is so astounding. Taken together, his life's work is an incredible testament to a highly individual mind writing at a time such individualism should have been wider appreciated. Blake is the great bridge between the Enlightenment and Romanticism. Blake is the great ur-Modernist.
