“With Dreams upon my Bed thou scarest me, and affrightest me with Visions.”
Here, “most terrible of all, we see embodied the accusations of torment which Job brings against his Maker; a theme hard to dwell upon, and which needs to be viewed in the awful spirit in which Blake conceived it.” The design is thoroughly characteristic, both in its strength and its feebleness, of Blake’s wilder imaginations.
