    William Blake, John Keats and William Wordsworth all believe in the "depth" of the world and the possibilities of the human heart. However, each poet looks towards different periods in time to capture meaning in life. Blake looks towards the future for his inspiration, Keats towards the present and Wordsworth towards the past. The Qur’an passage is also reminiscent of William Wordsworth’s poem “Ode (There Was a Time)” (). The poem basically discusses the concept of pre-existence for the human species.

      Revolution. When reference is made to Romantic verse, the poets who generally spring to mind are William Blake (), William Wordsworth (), Samuel Taylor Coleridge (), George Gordon, 6th Lord Byron (), Percy Bysshe Shelley () and John Keats (). These writers had an intuitive feeling that they were ‘chosen’ to guide others . This title features new scholarship informed by both historicist and metaphysical approaches, offering original readings of the poetry of Blake and Wordsworth and their reception. The history of responses to the works of William Wordsworth and William Blake can be divided into those who have.

    Robert Browning () was, with Blake and Wordsworth, one of the deepest of the English mystics, Spurgeon says. She also claims he was a philosopher. The world of things we see all around is merely the expression of an underlying unity. Everything grows towards it.   n this exceptional work, produced as part of a series of literary biographies throughout the s, author G.K. Chesterton directly addresses the question of whether William Blake's genius was tainted by mental illness or whether part of the key to his success was his idiosyncratic impressive chronicler of Blake's life, Chesterton weaves well-reasoned descriptions of Blake's.

William Blake is a mystic par excellence, and perhaps the greatest poet in English Literature who expresses his mystical thoughts through symbols.

Like Shelley, he uses the objects of nature as symbols to suggest the spiritual reality that lies behind appearances. Songs of Innocence are apparently very simple but not always actually so.

As a hardcore mystic, Blake in his boyhood days saw bright angels standing in a tree by the roadside. In his manhood, the earth and the air seemed to him full of spiritual presences. His imagination could not summon at any moment before him “armies of angels that soar, legions of demons that lurk.”.

Mysticism, then, separates itself from the repressive instinct of religion. Mysticism is in touch with all of humankind, not simply the spiritual but the physical. Blake's mystical beliefs tie up the beauty of the divine with the beauty of the embodied.

William Wordsworth () is a renowned mystic poet of the Romantic Revival. If William Blake is the prince of mysticism, William Wordsworth is undoubtedly the monarch of the kingdom of mysticism.

William Wordsworth has not only possessed the lofty imaginative grandeur of a great romantic poet but he is.

William Blake and Kahlil Gibran as Mystics Mysticism is more or less a spiritual discipline which assists a human soul to make contact with the divine reality and a mystic is a person who has had a mystical experience on a very personal level.

The question of madness and mysticism both were an early subject for Blake. Blake's oilher was an avid follower of Emmanuel Swedenborg who was a Swedish scientist and religious teveryer. Swedenborg amoboned his studies of science in after claiming that he understood the moteler nature of human beings (what he called the divine Word) after.

Wordsworth’s mysticism is different and remarkable for its contemplative mood and pantheistic conception of nature. It is structured based on the belief that nature is a living being and the dwelling place of god.

The latter is acknowledged as being one of the founding voices of the Romantic movement in English verse; the former's writing has resisted many efforts to definitively categorize it. Mysticism in Blake and Wordsworth, published inclassifies him as a "painter- poet-mystic" and declares him to be "one of the greatest mystic poets of his time" (Korteling 7); Kathleen Raine sees him in the long line of neoplatonic mystical.

Religion is the focus of Blake’s visionary works, which does not exist in any other Romantic poetry. Mysticism is the most salient feature of Wordsworth's poetry, for he was one who saw, whose inward eye was focussed to visions scarce dreamt of by men.

It is because of the strangeness and unfamiliarity of his vision that he is a difficult poet to understand, and the key to the understanding of him is a mystic one.

Wordsworth’s mysticism is remarkable for its meditative mood and pantheistic conception of nature. It is moulded by the belief that nature is a living being and the dwelling place of god. Nature is the means through which a man can come into contact with god. Wordsworth maintains that a divine spirit pervades through all the objects of nature.

Both Blake and Wordsworth particularly emphasise childhood in their poetry. Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience for example especially appear to treat childhood as a symbol of the human condition as seen from Blake’s perspective. His poem The Voice of the Ancient Bard in Songs of Innocence, starts with the lines.

Youth of delight come hither. Blake repudiates the traditional concept of morality. He advocates the concept of forgiveness because "The Resurrection of Forgiveness" belongs to eternal life. It shall bring everlasting peace and joy for man.

He relates the examples of Christ, Joseph and Mary. For Blake, chastity, a state of sublimity, is associated with religious misconceptions.Blake dreamt of a world free from oppression, cruelty and injustice. Mysticism of William Blake: Mysticism and melancholy are often companions in poetry.
