The writings of William Blake were not really understood by his contemporaries or the Victorians, and it was only in 1910, with the publication of Joseph Wicksteed's Blake's Vision of the Book of Job, that the long process of comprehending Blake's works seriously began. Part I of this work consists of twelve chapters that are primarily intended to instruct the reader who has little or no acquaintance with Blake's more difficult works.
