From childhood dreams to adult fantasies, many of us have lived in the hope and wonder that there is someone watching over us. Angels of love, angels of peace, angels warding off fear and the forces of darkness and mischief. All these mystical beings are celebrated here: guardian angels protecting the frightened and defending the sleeping infants; angels of power and beauty singing the glory of God and filling the skies with light, ecstasy and majesty; and even the legions of awesome warrior angels driving away evil with burning eyes and slashing swords. Images and archetypes of heavenly figures are part of religion, mythology and collective unconscious, depicted in art, prose and poetry for thousands of years. This book brings the finest of these words and paintings together to celebrate these celestial beings, from half-seen ethereal presences and awe-inspiring avengers, to putti, chubby cherubs and mischievous Cupids plotting their pranks. It includes poetry by Robert Browning, Emily Dickinson, William Blake and Edmund Spenser, prose from the likes of Saint Augustine's "Confessions", Dante's "Paradiso" and Milton's "Paradise Lost" and art from the Pre-Raphelite period, the Renaissance and the Counter Reformation.
