William Blake (1757–1827) was one of the great English poets and artists of the 18th and 19th centuries. His poem “Jerusalem,” reprinted here, was virtually unknown for more than a century. It was set to music in the early 20th century by Sir Hubert Parry and has become a widely sung hymn and an unofficial British anthem.
