Amazingly, he did not attend school for very long and dropped out shortly after learning to read and write so that he could work in his father’s shop. The life of a hosier however was not the right path for Blake as he exhibited early on a skill for reading and drawing. Blake’s skill for reading can be seen in his understanding for and use of works such as the Bible and Greek classic literature. Interestingly enough, Blake’s skill for writing went largely unnoticed throughout his life. One of his more famous works, Songs of Innocence, which he wrote and illustrated, with the help of his wife Catherine Boucher, sold slowly and for only a few shillings during his day.

At an early age, Blake experienced visions. These visions continued through most of his childhood.

William Blake William Blake was born November 28, 1757, in London, England. He was best known as an English poet, visionary, painter, and printmaker. Largely unrecognized during his lifetime, Blake's work is today considered important and significant in the history of both poetry and the visual arts.

Although Hawthorne was not enthusiastic and hard-working when it came to his schoolwork, he was still an avid reader and writer. His ultimate goal of becoming a successful author stemmed from a childhood leg injury, which left him bedridden for months and gave him time to develop his interest in literature. Now that he was interested, all he needed was a subject to write about. Hawthorne, the sixth generation in a family of American Puritans, was raised by his family to strictly follow his religion. As he grew older, he would soon learn that his family’s connections to Puritanism were stronger than he could have imagined.
I believe he is a symbolic author and a master at writing dramatic monologues. In conclusion, Browning is a modest author and he was one of the most important poets in the Victorian period. Browning lived a great life and his poems live on too I believe Browning work was just misunderstood back in the day and his most important poem would be ‘’ The Ring And The Book’ it is not often looked at today but the poem did bring him a lot of success before he passed away. The descriptions Browning gave off in his poems brought his readers close with the characters Browning made them relate in some shape of form with his unique techniques in his dramatic monologue.
His work of art in the child fiction literature genre was a combination of his inspiration and imagination.

Blake's family was Nonconformists Protestant dissenters from the Church of England. They had Blake christened on December 11 at St. James's Church in Piccadilly. Blake's mother educated him in mere reading and writing, and he worked in a shop until the age of 14. His family ran this shop, and later his brother and he acquired the store through inheritance. Despite those misgivings, he taught himself Latin, Greek, Hebrew, French, and Italian.
