My analysis observes the accordance between Blake's work and.
Blake was professionally an engraver and acquired little acclaim for his work in his lifetime. The Book of Urizen is a creation story, an alternative Genesis — the connections to the Bible are many and it is not difficult to recognize the source for the protagonist, Urizen, a bearded patriarch, the most stable Western representation of Yahweh.
But if Yahweh is at times a god of wrath, Urizen is a demiurge — a misguided creator whose purpose is flawed and whose world is broken — The Book of Urizen is a meditation on Evil as a seed in the very foundations of the universe.
