Blake: Prophet of the Imagination

Led by Grevel Lindop

Saturday 27 April  

10.00 am - 4.00 pm

Cost £30 Concessions £20

Please bring a packed lunch. Coffee and tea provided


 

William Blake - poet, artist, prophet and visionary - was London's great exponent of imaginative freedom and creativity. A profound and joyful thinker, he shows how our imagination shapes the world and how we can 'cleanse the doors of perception' to experience the world 'as it is, infinite!' Looking at some of Blake's poems, prose and radiant artwork, we shall explore his ideas and see how they apply to our own lives: helping us 'To see a World in a Grain of Sand, and Heaven in a wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the Palm of your Hand, and Eternity in an Hour'.

 

Grevel Lindop is a poet, critic, biographer and travel writer. He taught courses on Blake for many years at Manchester University, and has also taught Buddhist meditation for more than thirty years. He chairs the Board of the Temenos Academy (www.temenosacademy.org) founded by Dr Kathleen Raine, and writes essays and reviews for a range of magazines including The London Magazine, Stand, PN Review, Poetry London and Temenos Academy Review.
