Doors of Perception

Gems William Blake

William Blake (1757–1827) was an English poet, visionary, painter, and printmaker.

Although he was not well known during his lifetime, today Blake’s work is thought to be important in the history of both poetry and the visual arts. He illustrated among many other books ‘Paradise Lost’ in 1808.

William Blake

If the doors of perception were cleansed,
everything would appear to man as it is, Infinite.
For man has closed himself up,
till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell
