Blake's Prophetic Book
The English poet, artist and engraver William Blake created Jerusalem, The Emanation of the Giant Albion between 1804 and 1820. It was the longest and the last of his prophetic books, in which he created his own personal mythology and mixed it with biblical history. The epic poem illustrates the fall and eventual salvation of Albion, the universal human. The plate above — one of the 100 included in Jerusalem — depicts the characters Vala, Hyle and Skofeld.
