In later life Blake began to sell a great number of his works, particularly his Bible illustrations, to Thomas Buttsa patron who saw Blake more as a friend than a man whose work held artistic merit; this was typical of the opinions held of Blake throughout his life. This idea of love starting out as a land of liberty and promise but ending up a world of death and restriction is expressed very powerfully through the image of the garden. He did not, however, believe that children should be kept from becoming experienced entirely.
