Importance should indicate an articles relative relationship to Blake scholarship or public interest in Blake.

Criteria for importance can be broken down in the following ways:

  • Top Importance- Blake's Biography, complete works by Blake (whether epic poems or full publications), work treated extensively in scholarship or taught extensively in schools
  • High Importance - Important poems or illustrations, important Blake scholars, people or places important in understanding Blake's life
  • Mid Importance - Less important poems or illustrations, characters from Blake's mythology that receive considerable attention
  • Low importance - derivative works of little importance, minor characters in Blake's mythology, individuals on the periphery of Blake's life
