Library hosting Blake poetry program

Fairfield Public Library will host Bryan Aubrey, Ph.D., for a presentation entitled ?Keeping the Divine Vision: The Poetry and Art of William Blake? from 2:30-4 p.m. Sunday in its meeting room.


Aubrey has studied Blake for more than 40 years.


?When I first encountered Blake as an undergraduate in England, he changed my life,? Aubrey said. ?I was enthralled by his work and decided that all I wanted to do was study Blake!


?It is not unusual for Blake to have a transformative effect on people,? Aubrey continued. ?His poetry and designs can grab you and lift you ... I am delighted to be able to share Blake?s vision with the entire Fairfield community, and I warmly invite everyone to attend.?
