He took the wan humanitarianism, sentimental and self-indulgent, of his time and forced it into a startling humanism, imaginative and profoundly social. He seized upon the abstract and bloodless conceptions of political radicalism and thrust them into their necessary habitat, the heart and the brain, the human fact.--Mark SchorerWilliam Blake
