William Blake: Poetry Fetter’d

William_Blake_-_Jerusalem,_Plate_1,_Frontispiece_-_Google_Art_Project

Poetry Fetter’d Fetters the Human Race. Nations are Destroy’d or Flourish in proportion as Their Poetry, Painting and Music are Destroy’d or Flourish! The Primeval State of Man was Wisdom, Art and Science.

–from Jerusalem
