So wrote Bernard Levin for The Times in 1978. What is the big deal? The problem is that Blake’s work is an assault on our modern sensibilities. He challenges us to re-think whether divine energy rather than reason carries us forward. Yes, he thought Newton and the enlightenment in general, were ridiculous. You cannot disassemble energy! We would like to think that he had a few loose screws. Or, we hope that he did. But did he? Levin was not so sure.
