Blake fascinates me, but I know relatively little about him. I'd say this is my first real exposure to him outside of the standard high school English Lit selections ("Tyger Tyger burning bright, etc.")

So here we have part Biblical prophecy (in which he seems to suggest that the mores imposed by the church are more sinful than the sins they profess to be against), a series of proverbs, and a series of dreams or visions.

Clearly, I need to read more to put this in perspective. But this feels like a good starting point.
