About the Author

William Blake (1757-1827) was an English poet and visual artist often linked to the Romantic movement. As a youth in London, he was primarily educated at home before becoming an engraver's apprentice. Later, Blake would attend the Royal Academy and eventually find work in publishing. His debut, Poetical Sketches, was printed in 1783 followed by Songs of Innocence in 1789. The latter is arguably his most popular collection due to its vivid imagery and thought-provoking themes.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), the great visionary poet whose idiosyncratic style, intense inner life, and eternally questioning mind make her one of the most fascinating and beloved American writers and the perfect medium for this divination deck. A "passenger of infinity," Dickinson contemplated the "little Mysteries" that "harass us - like Life - and Death" and came up with these breathtakingly ethereal answers.
