The marriage of heaven and hell by William Blake( Book )
132 editions published between 1790 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,317 libraries worldwide
"No work has challenged its readers like Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. The '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 the text, the interlinear figures, and the larger designs. In a special comparative section, the same plate from each of the other eight surviving copies is also reproduced."--Page 4 of cover

POETRY & POETS. William Blake (28 November 1757 ? 12 August 1827) was an English poet, painter, and printmaker. 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. His prophetic poetry has been said to form "what is in proportion to its merits the least read body of poetry in the English language". His visual artistry has led one modern critic to proclaim him "far and away the greatest artist Britain has ever produced". Although he only once journeyed farther than a day's walk outside London during his lifetime, he produced a diverse and symbolically rich corpus, which embraced 'imagination' as "the body of God", or "Human existence itself" This volume contains many of his writings, including: "Songs of Innocence", "Songs of Experience", "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell", and a selection from the Prophetic Books
