My Business Is To Create (Blake’s Infinite Writing) My Business Is To Create (Blake’s Infinite Writing) by Eric G. Wilson (broadcast 10-17-2011)  Based on and celebrating William Blake’s personification of creativity in action, Wilson provides an indispensable writer’s handbook that is a call to consider life itself as a creative act.  A small book of just some 85 pages, not including notes, it manages to offer an exquisitely written distillation of Blake’s approach to imagining the world and the effect it has had on so many of those who followed him, from Yeats to Ginsberg, from Emily Dickinson to Phillip K. Dick.   Included along the way are wise words for all who write or want to write.  A book to excite the way the reader, and the writer,  looks at life.  Find out more at http://www.wfu.edu/~wilsoneg/
