‘A series of talks about inspirational writers would not be complete without William Blake’ is how David Fallon introduced his talk in the series recorded at the Be Inspired! event.
David talks not only about Blake’s texts but also shows some of the fantastic illustrations he created, for example in books by Darwin and Mary Wollstoncraft. He also discusses how Blake’s writing was inspired and influenced by others, including those whose work he was illustrating.
At the Be Inspired! event on December 14, 2011, a group of Oxford academics presented a series of short inspirational talks around various writers that inspire. The talks were all recorded and will be published as podcasts as part of the Great Writers Inspire project.
