This paper discusses the meaning of sublime by the poet William Blake and its interpretation by Burke. Blake in his poem exposed the limitations that rational reason placed on man's ability to perceive the relationship between his own body and soul. Blake believed that the sublime could help shatter the barriers that human reason imposed on man's imagination. Burke demonstrates how sublime focuses on pain rather than pleasure, because pain is stronger in its operation. Sublime is spoken of as showing different emotions and perceptions in a spiritual and soul-searching sense.
