Présentation de l'éditeur

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell (Illuminated Manuscript with the Original Illustrations of William Blake)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.

This ebook is a series of texts, which were written in imitation of biblical books of prophecy, but expressing the poets own personal romantic and revolutionary beliefs. It is not exactly known when the work was written. One assumes it was composed in London between 1790 and 1793 , a period of political conflict arising immediately after the French Revolution.

The book is about the first person narrators visit to Hell, a concept taken by Blake from Dantes Inferno and Miltons Paradise Lost. Apart from the opening Argument and the Song of Liberty, the entire book is written in prose.

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell was influenced by the mysticism of Swedish theosophist Emanuel Swedenborg and is also in part a satire on Emanuel Swedenborgs writings, especially on Heaven and Hell from which Blake adapted the title.

William Blake (1757 – 1827) was a British poet, painter, visionary mystic, and engraver, who illustrated and printed his own books.  Blake proclaimed the supremacy of the imagination over the rationalism and materialism of the 18th-century. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age.

HASH(0x8a1dd7f8) étoiles sur 5 Please disregard most of the other reviews of this product... 19 juillet 2011

Please disregard some of the other reviews of this product as they have been transferred by to this product when they were written for another product -- no fault of the reviewers. does not currently recognize the need for different reviews of different editions of the same work. This review is of the edition of William Blake's Marriage of Heaven and Hell published by U Chicago Press (2011) for the Bodelian library and edited by Michael Phillips. Some of these other reviews really need to be deleted as they are completely irrelevant to this specific product. I will be writing here about the hardcover edition. I have not yet seen a copy of the paperback edition.

This beautiful and professionally-bound U Chicago edition of MHH appears to be a cover to cover facsimile of the Bodelian's copy of Marriage of Heaven and Hell. I mean "cover to cover" quite literally: the image posted here as the cover is a full-color photographic reproduction of a nineteenth-century binding, wear marks and all. Upon opening the book you will find a full-color reproduction of the inside cover, handwriting, bookstamp, and all. The next page -- which is a blank page in the original -- is again reproduced exactly, water stains and all. What you will be purchasing with this edition, then, is an exact reproduction of Copy B of the Marriage of Heaven and Hell from cover to cover, with the addition of Phillips's extensive introduction, textual transcription, notes, commentary, a checklist of copies, and bibliography. There's simply nothing like it; not even the edition published by the William Blake Trust for the Illuminated Books series. Owning this book is as close to owning an original copy of the Marriage of Heaven and Hell as you can get.

The William Blake Archive does have Copy B of the Marriage of Heaven and Hell online with a textual transcription, so you can preview the specific contents of the reproductions there. This edition, however -- being a full, cover to cover reproduction of the book owned by the Bodelian -- includes several additional plates that aren't part of the same sequence of images available on the Blake archive website (though probably available by selecting the individual plate and clicking "compare"). These additional images include several different copies of what is Plate 14 in the Bodelian copy with alternate copies of a few other plates from the MHH (such as A Song of Liberty and one of the Memorable Fancies), and a copy of "Our End is Come" preceding the text of MHH. You can read more details about Copy B of the MHH on the William Blake Archive website.

Overall, well worth the price and a good purchase even if you already own the William Blake Trust's edition. I think this volume represents the future of Blake publishing: professional facsimile editions of each individual copy.

Since this is a fairly serious work, the Amazon mandated choices regarding plot, mood, pace and characters really don't apply. Since Amazon groups together all reviews of books with the same title, the one to get is edited by Michael Phillips. Mr Phillips has spent almost a lifetime studying William Blake and carefully presents his insight as well as differences in various editions of the book.
To appreciate this book, one has to take into account the political and religious turmoil when it was written. Mr Phillips gives a lot of background to help understand the era.

I do not understand why, but this is not the entire book. It is only three pages and only contains the Proverbs of Hell. I wish I noticed that before I bought it. The whole book is available online for free, so don't bother with this incomplete version.

Good grief -- the other reviewers of this book clearly did not buy it, but are arguing about Blake's theology and using this Website to do it.

I have no comment on the poem. It needs no defense and has fully established itself in Western culture.

But as for the *book*, the object you hold in your hands and look at, I do have a few words. This is a very poorly produced, poorly bound, amateurishly laid out book containing appalling reproductions of the art. It was pretty obviously created in Microsoft Word and bound at the equivalent of a Kinko's. For twenty bucks you can do a lot better. I'm returning my edition.

This was considered the work of a mad man when it was first published, I would compare it to dante's inferno in places, the art work was breakthruough for its time. I think it is the work of a man way ahead of his time. Written when revolution was in the air, it is still revelant today.
