  • confession to make you won t find a bust of William Blake in my studio No only because my studio is a cowshed He does not look down at me from the wall he does not visit me in my sleep Not so far as I know I have known Blake as a poet most of my life without especially loving any of his poems When I learned that my poem Have You Seen had won the first ever Blake Poetry Prize I pulled down two biographies from my shelves and I googled the eighteenth century 1757 1827 London dissenter engraver printer publisher and eccentric and I found a man in whose worldview I found something strikingly like my own The Blake is one of Australia s leading art prizes and dreamed up by the Blake Society to encourage art that engaged broadly with spiritual issues as William Blake had done in all his work it has been around for fifty seven years Blake s spirituality was earthy iconoclastic and robust Nothing pious about it even though he drew in his imagery his diction and metaphors from the Bible and the Low Church Christianity in which he grew up I don t think it s misrepresenting him to say that he was much more concerned with the creation than the creator The divinity of the actual world and the divine comedy of mankind within it this was where he focused his vision All the deities there ever were he once wrote dwell in the human breast We are each of us an expressions on god s face an idea in her teeming mind The whole world is altogether more mysterious and awesome and each of us more godly than any of us least of all the church had allowed To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a Wild Flower Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour Blake stood outside the established Church and he raged especially against its invention of sin as a means to cow us and justify itself Energy erotic carnal intellectual visceral made all life and any decent human achievement possible thought Blake and we should indulge in it harness it and celebrate it He had no time for shame but a great deal for delight Man was made for Joy and Woe he wrote Not you notice for piety but for the heights and depths of a well lived a wild a courageously pursued and rich kind of life So it is right that the Blake Prize has often after a conservative start encouraged and attracted works that challenge the rubrics of middlebrow religion Bliss blasphemy and belief the theme of the first Blake Poetry Prize cleverly alliterating Blake s name nicely glosses most of Blake s creative output especially his poems see Auguries of Innocence It also describes the habitat of my work So I have to confess that it wasn t hard
