Title:Adam and Eve Sleeping (Illustration for Paradise Lost)
Notes:

"For Blake, inspiration and vision are not to be learned: they can only be received. You either have them or you do not. He distrusted learning, artifice, the acquisition of skills, the attainments of reason...But he knew his Bible initmately, and professed himself a Christian." [from English Spirituality: From 1700 to the Present Day, by Gordon Mursell. Westminster John Knox Press, 2001, p. 53]
