Présentation de l'éditeur

- Contains over 400 original photographic reproductions of Blake’s hand-crafted masterpieces

William Blake was one of the England’s greatest poets, and one of England’s greatest artists. He united art and poetry in his “illuminated books”, which he painstakingly engraved with his verses and drawings, then coloured by hand. Only a few copies of each one were ever made. The illuminated books are a sublime expression of his unique religious and artistic vision, exploring good and evil, heaven and hell, and the nature of human imagination. Even after two centuries their timeless beauty can takes a viewer’s breath away. This monumental ebook edition brings together for the first time all of these immortal masterpieces, including Songs of Innocence and Experience, Milton, Jerusalem, and his “prophecies” America and Europe. This edition presents reproductions of every page of the illuminated books, with each one followed by the text of the poem, meticulously edited and fully searchable. All of the illustrations have been specially formatted for Kindle. They render in elegant black and white on e-paper Kindles, and in glorious full colour on tablets such as the iPad or Kindle Fire, or on Kindle for PC. Blake’s visionary works can finally be experienced as he himself intended, with words and art together in one.

“Imagination is the real and eternal world of which this vegetable universe is but a faint shadow.”
William Blake

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful and powerful 25 octobre 2000
Par Matt - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book brings the words and images of Blake to brilliant life. The volume is gorgeous, and the colors extremely rich. Having read Blake's poetry in un-illuminated format before, I now am even more appreciative of the value of seeing the work as Blake originally intended. Blake is a marvelous poet and artist, and this collection of his illuminated work is a marvelous book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Both the words & vision of a prophetic soul on fire 6 février 2007
Par William Timothy Lukeman - Publié sur Amazon.com
While many people are familiar with William Blake's poetry, if only through the handful of commonly anthologized short poems from grade school & high school English classes, this is how his work was meant to be experienced: the poetry in union with the art, creating a vision far greater & more deeply moving than the sum of its already impressive parts. The words literally flow, twine, blossom in vivid & startling color, woven into the intricate, symbolic artwork. There aren't enough superlatives for this edition, which enables everyone to finally see & feel the Universe as Blake did: ablaze with power, wonder, beauty, horrors, and the godlike beings of the human psyche, titantic aspects transcending any neat, pre-packaged psychological or symbolic labels. For anyone wanting insight into the soul of Western civilization over the past few centuries, the soul in which we all struggle to find meaning & purpose now, this volume is absolutely essential. Most highly recommended!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 To Create a Little Flower is the Labour of Ages 30 octobre 2008
Par Laurie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Valuable things are not easy; easy things are not valuable. I don't know if that's a quotation from the Tao-Te Ching, but it ought to be. William Blake's longer poems, the so-called Prophetic Books, are legendary in their difficulty. Each of the two great epics, "Milton" and "Jerusalem", is a world in itself, taking years or decades to explore. Everyone who has made the effort considers it time well spent.

Blake wasn't shy about the importance of his own work. In a letter he described "Milton" as "the Grandest Poem this World Contains". But these immense, unique hand-engraved, hand-coloured cosmic-spiritual epics found no buyers in Blake's own lifetime. Only one coloured copy of "Jerusalem" is known to exist.

The Illuminated Books have been reproduced in colour before, but this is the first time all the plates have been printed full-size in a single book. Blake is fascinating even in black-and-white, but to read these books in the form intended means entering a new world. By depicting spiritual principles as People, Blake shows us the meaning of all ancient gods.

After the lyrics of the "Songs of Innocence and "Songs of Experience", the best place to start is the "Book of Thel", then the "Visions of the Daughters of Albion". When reading the long books, a plain text copy of the "Complete Poems" will come in handy: difficulty in reading Blake's graceful orange script for "Jerusalem" may be one difficulty too many. The remaining shorter books, with their anguished mythical narratives, rely more than the others on their illustrations, printed as if with fire, rust and soot: images of an age of Revolution.

Blake's aim was nothing less than "to open the immortal Eyes/ Of Man into the Worlds of Thought, into Eternity/ Ever expanding in the Bosom of God, the Human Imagination". Astonishingly this is not exaggeration nor plain craziness: he can actually do this.
If a book I admire gets five stars, this one deserves fifteen. It's a marvel, a rectangular treasure, one of the most precious books ever printed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 the original illuminated books 8 novembre 2007
Par Ernie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This beautiful paperback volume consists of high quality reproductions of Blake's original illustrated books. It is an incredible bargain. The pictures are powerful and Blake intended the pictures and the texts to illumine each other. I've never disciplined myself to sit down and read the text from the engraved script; its not easy or natural since the print on many plates is small and faint; but it would be worth the effort. However, there is a type face version of all the poems in the back, to refer to when needed to make out a word. This is an essential book for anyone seeking to understand Blake's profound prophetic vision more deeply.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing, but a little disappointing 7 septembre 2009
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I certainly appreciate how much work must have gone into creating this book and it certainly was a product of love and attention to detail. My disappointment lies in the technical, mundane things. Reproducing Blake's work at the original size means that there is a lot of wasted page space and it's kinda hard to read. He hand-wrote all the text in his books and, while beautiful in its own right, my myopic little eyes have a hard time sussing out the actual words. The editors of this book helpfully include a type-written transcript of his poetry and prose... at the back of the book. There are a few pages where the text is transcripted onto the page below the original copy, but I feel that it should have been done for most of the book, since the "actual size" images leave a lot of white space that isn't utilized. Also, and this has nothing to do with the book itself, I didn't do enough research as to the contents, but there aren't any of his stand-alone paintings or his illustrations for "The Divine Comedy." This is certainly a comprehensive book, just not what I was looking for.
