Poet
    (November 28, 1757-August 12, 1827)
    Wrote and illustrated 'Poetical Sketches (1783),' 'Songs of Innocence (1789),' 'The Book of Thel (1789),' 'Marriage of Heaven and Hell (1790-1793),' 'Songs of Experience (1794)' and 'Jerusalem (1804-1820)'
    He claimed to have mystical visions.
    At age four, he started screaming because he said he saw God's face in a window.
    He claimed to have 'conversations' with his dead brother his whole life.
    He believed he was possessed by the ghost of John Milton.
    Many people thought he was insane.
    He popularized the term 'New Age,' opening the door for wackos like Shirley Maclaine, Marshall Herff Applewhite and Sally Kirkland.
    He suffered from gallstones.
    His drawings and paintings are as famous as his poems.
    His works are experimental and surreal (especially for his time).
    He taught his wife to read and write when she was twenty.
    He supported the idea of free love.
    When his wife didn't have children, he suggested bringing another woman into the arrangement (but his wife shot down the idea pretty quick).
    He and his wife had a long, happy marriage.
    After he died, his wife claimed to have 'conversations' with him (they must have made quite the pair).
