This essay analyses two poems by William Blake: "All Religions are One" and "There is No Natural Religion". According to the paper, the texts clearly show Blake's opinion on religious situation in England during 18th century and his views on religious institutions, critique of reason and humanity. Both texts are recognized as writings in which Blake laid out his basic ideas developed in later works.
From the Paper:"There is no doubt that William Blake was a revolutionary. Blake was a peculiar figure in the history of not only England but also whole Europe. In the first place, however, Blake was an artist and he valued art over everything else. But, even though he lived in the world of arts, he was certainly not an apolitical figure. On the contrary, Blake was a committed radical - a fact that is demonstrated throughout his artistic output. His writings are concerned with the broad range of social, political and religious problems of the turbulent times he lived in."
