The Birthplace of William Blake in Marshall Street, Soho

The Birthplace of William Blake in Marshall Street, Soho

William Blake, the artist, engraver and poet was born in a house which stood near the site of this commemorative plaque in Marshall Street, Soho.


Amongst the incredible, evocative poetry that William Blake wrote are "Jerusalem", "Songs of Innocence" and "Songs of Experience".


Not fully appreciated in his own life-time, William Blake has since been recognised in the British culture as one of the greatest artists and poets England has ever produced.
