William Blake – The Marriage of Heaven and Hell

After reading the lecture material and the selection from William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, write a one and a half (1.5) page paper with a clear thesis, supporting body paragraphs, and a clear conclusion that discusses the role of author and artist in society. Is the author a visionary or a reporter of events? Are the two mutually exclusive? Use one or two properly-cited quotes from Blake’s text to support your analysis.
