Essay is a basic chronology of Blake's life and his artwork. plates are of course wonderful. Some are very familiar, but some I've never seen. realized I haven't seen the illustrated Songs of Innocence and Death, just read poems in anthologies. I think I will like them more if I can see them with the d paintings. Essay illuminated philosophies between such included works as the Marriage of Heaven and Hell. what an interesting character Blake was.
