William Blake, Lambeth and the Anti-Jacobin Terror 1792-1793
In search of biography
Little is known about Blake’s life in Lambeth during the early 1790s, the intense period of creativity when he produced poems, his iconoclastic The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, and the great series of Lambeth prophecies beginning with Visions of the Daughters of Albion and America a Prophecy. Apart from the works themselves, and where Blake lived, just over Westminster Bridge in the small South-London village of Lambeth, we know little. As a result of searching government files, local archives, parliamentary and medical reports and other contemporary sources in Britain and America, a reconstruction of Lambeth in the early 1790s can now be made.
