William Blake (1757–1827).  The Poetical Works.  1908.
 
On Friends and Foes
[To Hunt]: ‘Madman’ I have been call’d
 
XXV
‘MADMAN’ 1 I have been call’d: ‘Fool’ they call thee.
I wonder which they envy — thee or me?
 
Note 1. XXV, XXVI Both these epigrams, which immediately follow each other in the MS. Book, are evidently addressed to Hunt, and were occasioned by the reference of the latter to Fuseli and Blake in the Examiner, no. 75, June 4, 1809, or the later attack in no. 90, Sept. 17, 1809. Cp. also no. XXVIII, ll. 15 sqq. [back]
