Artist, poet and spiritual rebel, William Blake (1757-1827) was also a sexual rebel. In fact his religious influences included Moravians, Swedenborgians, Kabbalists and dabblers in Tantric sex, all of which influenced his spiritual erotic vision. Marsha Keith Schuchard author of Why Mrs Blake Cried and Catherine Leahy curator of the Blake exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria (from 4 April) speak to Rachael Kohn.
