A beautifully and faithfully reissued edition of a rare and wonderful book, its seeming simplicity belying its visionary wisdom. 

Widely recognised as a masterpiece of English literature, Songs of Innocence and Experience also occupies a key position in the history of Western art. This unique, newly reissued edition of the work allows William Blake to communicate with his readers as he intended, reproducing his own illumination and lettering from the finest existing example of the original work.

In this way, readers can experience the mystery and beauty of Blake's poems as he first created them, discovering for themselves the intricate web of symbol and meaning that connects word and image. 


Each poem is accompanied by a literal transcription, and the volume is introduced by the renowned historian and critic, Richard Holmes. This beautiful edition of The Songs of Innocence and Experience will be essential for those familiar with Blake's work, but also offers an ideal way into his world for those encountering him for the first time.

“….”

I only have one thing to say and that is, wow. The poem ‘The sick rose’ and its brutal identification of the distinctions between love and lust is extraordinary. If you are into classical poetry. I recommend.
