No work has challenged its readers like Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. His 'Proverbs of Hell' have been culled for the slogans of student protest and become axioms of modern thought. Iconoclastic, bizarre, unprecedented, it is all of these. Most extraordinary is the revolutionary method of its making. The Bodleian Library copy is one of the first that Blake printed using the method he called 'Illuminated Printing' and the only work in which he signifies its importance.This new edition includes a complete facsimile of the work, together with a transcript, and a plate-by-plate guide to text, the interlinear figures, and the larger designs, supplied in the commentary. Drawings from Blake's Manuscript Notebook used as a basis for the designs together with working proof impressions are reproduced in this volume, showing how the work evolved.In a special section, the same plate from each of the other eight surviving copies is also reproduced to show how over a period of more than 30 years Blake altered the way each copy was finished. The introduction discusses the work's literary and historical background, the printing process used to produce it and the question of why the work was published without an imprint identifying the author and printer.… (mais)

One can find the full text in a good anthology of Blake, but without the images to which he married the text, one is only getting half the message. This is a handy way to see the book as Blake intended, with full-color reproductions of the plates on which he engraved both words and pictures. ( )

I love Blake. He always manages to touch something in my heart. There's a reason the only poem I know by heart is one of his.
And whether it's with words, or with paint (The Night of Enitharmon's Joy is a personal favourite), or with his etchings (another personal favourite: 'Europe supported'. At first, it looks like a picture with 3 pretty, naked girls, then you realise it is harsh social commentary, that still rings true today), he always manages to make you think.

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell is just brilliant. It's one of those books you can read a thousand times, and still discover something more, something deeper each time.
I thus implore you to read it. ;)

Some quotes to live by (all from the 'Proverbs from Hell. I just selected a few that spoke to me today. There not the most well-known, just the ones I liked best today. Ask me tomorrow and I might select some others.)

- He whose face gives no light shall never become a star.
- No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.
- The most sublime act is to set another before you.
- Always be ready to speak your mind, and a base man will avoid you.

And the next quote summs up how Blake sees religion. My own view on it has always been similar, even before reading Blake.

"Till a system was formed, which some took advantage of and enslaved the vulgar by attempting to realize or abstract the mental deities from their objects. Thus began Priesthood. Choosing forms of worship from poetic tales. And at length they pronounced that the Gods had ordered such things. Thus men forgot that all deities reside in the human breast." (less) ( )

I first encountered this part visionary / part comic / part poetry / part etching long poem in 1969, in an English class, while an Engineering student at Cornell University. I had grown up a kid scientist, and my hope was that I'd become a NASA engineer. I was also very much in my head and not so much in my body, in the world of logic and not so much the world of emotion. Blake's poem convince me I had to change all that or I'd live out my days a reduced version of myself. This powerful piece reached out to me over many decades and 6000 miles and changed not only my focus (from Engineering to English major) but also set in motion a process of actualizing the more suppressed parts of myself, a lifelong activity that began then and there. Thank you, Mr. Blake!
