The William Blake Archive

I used The William Blake Archive this semester for school, and I couldn’t help but notice what an awesome resource it is. I wanted to share it with all of you. (Warning, the image on the main page is random from the collection of images on the site, and may contain nudity, based on that I wouldn’t extend my recommendation of this site to children.) 

When you arrive at the site, you’ll find that the main page is the navigation menu. Your main browsing options are:

Works in the Archive – this is the bulk of the collection. You’ll find Blake’s poetry, prose, illuminated printing, and visual art here. I used this section to check out the illuminated version of his poem and to talk about how it changes the context of the poem when you read it. 

 What’s New in the Archive – a handy news section that keeps you on top of what’s going on with the archive. 

Search – This section allows you to search the archive by title, keyword, and image. 

About Blake – here you can learn about William Blake’s work and check out his biographical details.

Resources for Further Research –  this section puts way to further your research into Blake at your fingertips. 

About the Archive – learn all about the archive, its curators, and a handy FAQ.

Tour of the Archive –  I’d recommend checking this section out before diving into the Works section. It gives you a great walk-through of the site and its features.

I think it is really awesome that thanks to technology the illuminated works of William Blake are accessible to a much wider audience. I hope you’ll check them out today!
