Blake personified imagination in the form of Urthona, one of the four Zoas that make up the human consciousness. After the "fall" Urthona became Los, the tortured poet. He believed that only through imagination could the tortured poet (Los) again transcend to the state of Urthona.

The imagination is not a State: it is the Human existence itself.
