As a result, he wrote his Descriptive Catalogue , which contains what Anthony Blunt called a "brilliant analysis" of Chaucer and is regularly anthologised as a classic of Chaucer criticism. The exhibition was very poorly attended, selling none of the temperas or watercolours. Its only review, in The Examiner , was hostile. Also around this time circa , Blake gave vigorous expression of his views on art in an extensive series of polemical annotations to the Discourses of Sir Joshua Reynolds , denouncing the Royal Academy as a fraud and proclaiming, "To Generalize is to be an Idiot".
The group shared Blake's rejection of modern trends and his belief in a spiritual and artistic New Age. Aged 65, Blake began work on illustrations for the Book of Job , later admired by Ruskin , who compared Blake favourably to Rembrandt , and by Vaughan Williams , who based his ballet Job: A Masque for Dancing on a selection of the illustrations.
In later life Blake began to sell a great number of his works, particularly his Bible illustrations, to Thomas Butts, a patron who saw Blake more as a friend than a man whose work held artistic merit; this was typical of the opinions held of Blake throughout his life.
Life mask taken in plaster cast in September , Fitzwilliam Museum.
The commission for Dante 's Divine Comedy came to Blake in through Linnell, with the aim of producing a series of engravings. Blake's death in cut short the enterprise, and only a handful of watercolours were completed, with only seven of the engravings arriving at proof form.
Even so, they have earned praise: '[T]he Dante watercolours are among Blake's richest achievements, engaging fully with the problem of illustrating a poem of this complexity. The mastery of watercolour has reached an even higher level than before, and is used to extraordinary effect in differentiating the atmosphere of the three states of being in the poem'.
Because the project was never completed, Blake's intent may be obscured. At the same time, Blake shared Dante's distrust of materialism and the corruptive nature of power, and clearly relished the opportunity to represent the atmosphere and imagery of Dante's work pictorially. Even as he seemed to be near death, Blake's central preoccupation was his feverish work on the illustrations to Dante's Inferno ; he is said to have spent one of the very last shillings he possessed on a pencil to continue sketching.
Eventually, it is reported, he ceased working and turned to his wife, who was in tears by his bedside. Beholding her, Blake is said to have cried, "Stay Kate! Keep just as you are — I will draw your portrait — for you have ever been an angel to me. Gilchrist reports that a female lodger in the house, present at his expiration, said, "I have been at the death, not of a man, but of a blessed angel.
His eyes Brighten'd and he burst out Singing of the things he saw in Heaven. Blake's body was buried in a plot shared with others, five days after his death — on the eve of his 45th wedding anniversary — at the Dissenter 's burial ground in Bunhill Fields , in what is today the London Borough of Islington. Following Blake's death, Catherine moved into Tatham's house as a housekeeper. She believed she was regularly visited by Blake's spirit.
She continued selling his illuminated works and paintings, but entertained no business transaction without first "consulting Mr. Tatham later joined the fundamentalist Irvingite church and under the influence of conservative members of that church burned manuscripts that he deemed heretical.
Blake's grave is commemorated by two stones.
The first was a stone that reads "Near by lie the remains of the poet-painter William Blake — and his wife Catherine Sophia —". The area had been damaged in the Second World War ; gravestones were removed and a garden was created. The memorial stone, indicating that the burial sites are "nearby", was listed as a Grade II listed structure in Blake is recognised as a saint in the Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica.
In a memorial to Blake and his wife was erected in Westminster Abbey. At the time of Blake's death, he had sold fewer than 30 copies of Songs of Innocence and of Experience.
Blake was concerned about senseless wars and the blighting effects of the Industrial Revolution. Much of his poetry recounts in symbolic allegory the effects of the French and American revolutions. Erdman claims Blake was disillusioned with them, believing they had simply replaced monarchy with irresponsible mercantilism and notes Blake was deeply opposed to slavery, and believes some of his poems read primarily as championing " free love " have had their anti-slavery implications short-changed.
Thompson 's last finished work, Witness Against the Beast: William Blake and the Moral Law , shows how far he was inspired by dissident religious ideas rooted in the thinking of the most radical opponents of the monarchy during the English Civil War.
Development of his views[ edit ] Because Blake's later poetry contains a private mythology with complex symbolism, his late work has been less published than his earlier more accessible work. The Vintage anthology of Blake edited by Patti Smith focuses heavily on the earlier work, as do many critical studies such as William Blake by D. The earlier work is primarily rebellious in character and can be seen as a protest against dogmatic religion especially notable in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, in which the figure represented by the "Devil" is virtually a hero rebelling against an imposter authoritarian deity.
In later works, such as Milton and Jerusalem, Blake carves a distinctive vision of a humanity redeemed by self-sacrifice and forgiveness, while retaining his earlier negative attitude towards what he felt was the rigid and morbid authoritarianism of traditional religion.
Not all readers of Blake agree upon how much continuity exists between Blake's earlier and later works. Psychoanalyst June Singer has written that Blake's late work displayed a development of the ideas first introduced in his earlier works, namely, the humanitarian goal of achieving personal wholeness of body and spirit.
Regarding Blake's final poem "Jerusalem", she writes: "The promise of the divine in man, made in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, is at last fulfilled. This renunciation of the sharper dualism of Marriage of Heaven and Hell is evidenced in particular by the humanisation of the character of Urizen in the later works.
Murry characterises the later Blake as having found "mutual understanding" and "mutual forgiveness". Please improve it by verifying the claims made and adding inline citations. Statements consisting only of original research should be removed.

His view of orthodoxy is evident in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. Therein, Blake lists several Proverbs of Hell , among which are the following: Prisons are built with stones of Law, Brothels with bricks of Religion.
As the catterpillar [ sic ] chooses the fairest leaves to lay her eggs on, so the priest lays his curse on the fairest joys. God wants not Man to Humble himself 55—61, E—20 For Blake, Jesus symbolises the vital relationship and unity between divinity and humanity: "All had originally one language, and one religion: this was the religion of Jesus, the everlasting Gospel. Antiquity preaches the Gospel of Jesus. Within these he describes a number of characters, including "Urizen", "Enitharmon", "Bromion" and "Luvah".
His mythology seems to have a basis in the Bible as well as Greek and Norse mythology,   and it accompanies his ideas about the everlasting Gospel.
One of Blake's strongest objections to orthodox Christianity is that he felt it encouraged the suppression of natural desires and discouraged earthly joy. That God will torment Man in Eternity for following his Energies. But the following Contraries to these are True 1. Man has no Body distinct from his Soul for that calld Body is a portion of Soul discernd by the five Senses, the chief inlets of Soul in this age.
Energy is the only life and is from the Body and Reason is the bound or outward circumference of Energy. Energy is Eternal Delight. Watercolour on wood. Blake does not subscribe to the notion of a body distinct from the soul that must submit to the rule of the soul, but sees the body as an extension of the soul, derived from the "discernment" of the senses.
Thus, the emphasis orthodoxy places upon the denial of bodily urges is a dualistic error born of misapprehension of the relationship between body and soul. Elsewhere, he describes Satan as the "state of error", and as beyond salvation.
He abhorred self-denial,  which he associated with religious repression and particularly sexual repression :  Prudence is a rich ugly old maid courted by Incapacity. He who desires but acts not breeds pestilence.
