Blake is known as the poet who alleges to have seen the prophet Ezekial in his garden one day. Blake was a burly but cerebral and mystical poet who wrote much with spiritual undertones. He was also an artist in his own right.

I ordered this book "new" from B&N, expecting the copy to be in mint condition. Not so. The packaging was atrocious, and the dust cover came out of the box looking like it had just retired from a long and fruitful career as a chimneysweep. If you can find the book in stores, maybe you'll get it in better condition because it really is terrific.
