Description

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell is a book by the English poet and printmaker William Blake. It is a series of texts written in imitation of biblical prophecy but expressing Blake's own intensely personal Romantic and revolutionary beliefs.

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell is a book by the English poet and printmaker William Blake. Like his other books, it was published as printed sheets from etched plates containing prose, poetry and illustrations. The plates were then coloured by Blake and his wife Catherine.

Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them. 1. A Theology of Luke and Acts: God's Promised Program, Realized for All Nations. The Argument Engraved circa 1790 Rintrah roars, and shakes his fires in the burden'd air; Hungry clouds swag on the deep. Once meek, and in a perilous path, The just man kept his course along The vale of death. Roses are planted where thorns grow, And on the barren heath Sing the honey bees.

As a new heaven is begun, and it is now thirty-three years since its advent: the Eternal Hell revives. But in the Book of Job Miltons Messiah is call'd Satan. For this history has been adopted by both parties. This is shewn in the Gospel, where he prays to the Father to send the comforter or Desire that Reason may have Ideas to build on, the Jehovah of the Bible being no other than he who dwells in flaming fire.

This version of the book is very, very disappointing. The binding is not good. The paper seems cheap.

Written principally in prose, The Marriage represents Blake's first full-scale attempt to present his philosophic message. In it he expresses his extreme humanist views through a system in which Angels and Devils change places, Good becomes Evil, Heaven is Hell. This version of the book is very, very disappointing. The "facsimile" is black and white, and tiny.

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. The core of William Blake's vision, his greatness as one of the British Romantics, is most fully expressed in his Illuminated Books, masterworks of art and text intertwined and mutually enriching. Made possible by recent advances in printing and reproduct. Songs of Innocence and of Experience.

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell was created early in Blake's series of illuminated books, each of which was presented by him as an attractive work of art made entirely by his own hand. Written principally in prose, The Marriage represents Blake's first full-scale attempt to present his philosophic message. In it he expresses his extreme humanist views - Angels and Devils change places, Good becomes Evil, and Heaven becomes Hell.

Do not buy this book. It is nothing but a faulty reprint of the text of MHH, with no illustrations except on the cover. There is a Dover reprint (much less expensive) that presents the full facsimile of the original book, not a bad transcription of the text. This book is a scam.

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.

The kindle version of this is not the full work as it states "60 pages" it is 6 pages of some obscure content from the entire work.

Specifically this Kindle version. It's not even close to the full text. Comes out at like 124kb, and the real thing is much larger.

I spent a buck on four pages of obscure poetry. I could have sampled it for free and encourage others to do so

This version of the book is very, very disappointing. The binding is not good. The paper seems cheap. The "facsimile" is black and white, and tiny. I usually don't write negative reviews, but this book was not worth my time picking it up. It is so sad that the beauty of William Blake has been desecrated by this edition.

It's not the work that I hate, it's the fact that I bought an art book, a book of artwork, to enjoy the artwork, but NOOOOO! This is a tiny child-sized book and the pictures inside have a blank white border all the way around the artwork on every page, so the actual art is cut down to 3in wide 4in. long, making it impossible to read the words or really see the drawings. It is a pointless endeavor, and I feel like I was cheated out of almost $10. I won't be buying from this particular seller again, and I buy a lot of books.
See my remarks about this and the Urizen facsimile. It might be better to have separate blow ups of the individual drawings on each page than to include the fuzzy pictures of the printed words or captions.
