Hervey, a popular and bombastic Divine, had an influence on William Blake who painted "Epitome of James Hervey's Meditations among the Tombs." Two of the works in this collection--MEDITATIONS AMONGST THE TOMBS and THERON AND ASPASIO--decisively influenced the imagery in Blake's well-known poem "The Tyger."
