I would like to recommend the following links to an interesting article about William Blake, an inspirational English visionary poet, writer, and artist, who lived in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. I believe that this article, as well as other writings about, or by, William Blake, should be of interest to anyone who is interested in infusing modern society, public affairs, and private life, with greater spiritual meaning, visionary inspiration, compassion, freedom, and warmhearted caring between individuals. It seems to me that William Blake's ideas can provide a meaningful challenge and attractive alternative to the superficial, vacuous, selfish egotism, vulgarity, and soulless, dreary, overly mechanical orientation of much of contemporary society.

The links to the article that I am recommending follow below:
