My Business Is to Create free pdf

For William Blake, living is creating, conforming is death, and "the imagination . . . is the Human Existence itself." But why are imagination and creation--so vital for Blake--essential for becoming human? And what is imagination? What is creation? How "do" we create? Blake had answers for these questions, both in word and in deed, answers that serve as potent teachings for aspiring writers and accomplished ones alike. Eric G. Wilson's "My Business Is to Create" emulates Blake, presenting the great figure's theory of creativity as well as the practices it implies.
