Campfire Presents: William Blake vs The World with John Higgs

In our July Campfire we’re delighted to be joined by writer and counterculture historian John Higgs with an insider’s view of the life and work of creative genius of William Blake.

In his recently published book William Blake vs The World Higgs returns to explore Blake’s remarkable invention as poet, painter, and printmaker. Although barely acknowledged in his lifetime, successive generations of artists and writers have sought inspiration from Blake’s incredible rich oeuvre of graphically illustrated Romantic poetry and treatises on politics and philosophy.

In typical Campfire fashion, the show will include graphical art and music selected by John Higgs in honour of the artist.

Join us to gain an exceptional insight into Blake’s brilliance through the eyes of one of his keenest students.

Campfire is live, online and free.
