William Blake also used "visualizing" methods. His poems, made from the interaction of full-scale drawings, patterns intertwined with text, and calligraphic gestures, could not be interpreted by conventions developed to understand print. Blake's work demanded a new poetics of "in-betweenness" in order to understand the relation of text, image, graphic gesture, and pictorial convention. Reading "between" - reading the link, or gap - remains a provocation and pleasure of fully developed hypertext.
