William Blake - Isaac Newton, 1795

Isaac Newton, 1795
"Both America: A Prophecy and its sequel, Europe: A Prophecy, deal with the upheavals of Blake's own time. In Europe the troubles are traced back to the misunderstanding of the true message of Christianity. Under the baleful influence of the harsh law-giving deity Urizen, Europe develops a repressive and materialistic society that eventually provokes the violent reaction of the French Revolution. —from William Blake, by William Vaughan."
