William Blake with great frequency alludes to the Bible, a source that crucially assists in implementing Blake’s allegory. Allusions are an essential function of Blake’s complex narrative, and my argument posits that unless the reader comprehends Blake’s allusions, which are silent signifiers, the context of Blake’s meaning and counter-meaning is not understood. Blake is a Master of Allusion.
