    Campfire Presents: William Blake vs The World (Highlights)

    We were delighted to be joined by writer and counterculture historian John Higgs with an insider’s view of the life and work of creative genius of William Blake. Discussing his recently published book William Blake vs The World, Higgs returned to explore Blake’s remarkable invention as poet, painter, and printmaker. Although barely acknowledged in his lifetime, successive generations of artists and writers have sought inspiration from Blake’s incredible rich oeuvre of graphically illustrated Romantic poetry and treatises on politics and philosophy.

John also sits down with writer, actress & theatre director Daisy Campbell for a chat on her one women play 'Pigspurt’s Daughter' and all things creative storytelling.
