Reader's note

As his letters show, Blake was a difficult man: odd and sensitive and single minded at the same time. He was self taught, so that his judgements were penetrating and childish by turns; he sometimes spoke as if no one had ever thought of the things he thought about. His visual imagination made everything that he said more life size, and as disturbing as a dream which is unreal because it is too real. He never tried to fit into the world; simply, innocently, and completely, he was a rebel. Always thought provoking and magnificent! Blake's poetry is among the greats. The following is from 'The clod and the pebble - "Love seeketh not itself to please, Nor for itself hath any care, But for another gives its ease, And builds a Heaven in Hell's despair." - wonderful, inside and out, this patterned, orange, penguin can take pride of place within any collection.
