Pressestimmen

"This is an excellent scholarly edition of one of Blake's most fascinating works, likely to become the defining text for generations to come. No one knows as much about Blake's work in this period as Michael Phillips and he uses his knowledge of the text, its context, and Blake's printing techniques to open up the question of what Blake thought he was doing with "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell"." --John Mee

--John Mee

"This edition of one of Blake's most potent and provocative books will give great pleasure both to Blake enthusiasts and to those new to his work."

--Tracy Chevalier

"A leading American Blake scholar once described the prospect of editing "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell" as 'a swamp filled with gators;' Michael Phillips has navigated his way with great skill through the problems of chronology, textual unity, technique, contemporary context and significance of Blake's strikingly witty, sardonic, quirky, cryptic product of his unique combination of text and illustration in his illuminated books. As well as the facsimile of Copy B, one of the earliest of the nine known copies of the book, there are twenty-one valuable supplementary color plates of comparable pages from other copies, including a full run of Plate 14 as it occurs in the nine copies produced between 1793 to the year of his death, 1827. The detailed commentary discusses both text and illustrations, and in the case of the illustrations is most helpfully accompanied by appropriate details from Blake's designs." -- Martin Butlin, formerly Keeper of the British Collection, Tate Gallery, London, editor of the catalogue raisonne of the Complete Paintings and Drawings of William Blake

Kurzbeschreibung







This carefully crafted ebook: "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell (Illuminated Manuscript with the Original Illustrations of William Blake)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.

This ebook is a series of texts, which were written in imitation of biblical books of prophecy, but expressing the poets own personal romantic and revolutionary beliefs. It is not exactly known when the work was written. One assumes it was composed in London between 1790 and 1793 , a period of political conflict arising immediately after the French Revolution.

The book is about the first person narrators visit to Hell, a concept taken by Blake from Dantes Inferno and Miltons Paradise Lost. Apart from the opening Argument and the Song of Liberty, the entire book is written in prose.

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell was influenced by the mysticism of Swedish theosophist Emanuel Swedenborg and is also in part a satire on Emanuel Swedenborgs writings, especially on Heaven and Hell from which Blake adapted the title.

William Blake (1757 – 1827) was a British poet, painter, visionary mystic, and engraver, who illustrated and printed his own books.  Blake proclaimed the supremacy of the imagination over the rationalism and materialism of the 18th-century. 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.

Von callisto TOP 500 REZENSENT am 19. Februar 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
Vorab, dieses Buch gibt es bei gutenberg org kostenlos und da hat es dieser Verlag wohl auch her. Man macht also mit der Arbeit Freiwilliger Geld und keiner unternimmt was. Vor allem. 27 Seiten und der Preis, wer rechtfertigt das bitte?

William Blake war eigentlich von seiner Ausbildung her Kupferstecher. Er arbeitete zum Broterwerb auch als Illustrator für andere Autoren.
Seine eigentliche Passion scheint aber eine Art verschrobener Naturmystizismus gewesen zu sein, denn in seiner Freizeit dichtete er und entwarf eine ziemlich bizarre, christlich inspirierte Mythologie, die sich mir vollkommen entzieht, weil sie mir einfach zu verschwurbelt ist.
Diese Gedichte druckte er als ganze Seiten, Text und Illustrationen jeweils auf einer Kupferplatte gemeinsam. Seine Frau illustrierte sie dann mit Wasserfarben. Er war also Selfpublisher, der seine verqueren, verschwurbelten mystischen Visionen in illustrierter Kleinstauflage irgendwie unter die Leute brachte.
Die Scans der bunten Seiten, eigentlich Blakes komplettes dichterisches Werk kann man online lesen (4umi . com / blake /). Dieses ebook ist nur die reine, unkommentierte Textausgabe. Die Northon Anthology Book D kommentiert und gibt noch ein wenig Hintergrund, viel hilft das aber nicht, ich kann Aber immerhin, „The Marriage of Heaven and Hell“ ist ein nettes Stückchen frühen Kirchenbashings. Blake hat irgendwie seine eigene Ansicht darüber, was Seele ist und was Gott.
Vor allem „Proverbs of Hell“ hat ein paar echt brauchbare Zitate, die man sich über den Schreibtisch hängen kann:
The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom. – Nach einer durchzechten Nacht
Prudence is a rich ugly old maid courted by Incapacity.

Many of the ideas in this book are very contradicting to the bible. Read C.S. Lewis' responce to this book "The Great Divorce".

HASH(0x8cd51dd4) von 5 Sternen Please disregard most of the other reviews of this product... 19. Juli 2011
Von James Rovira - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Please disregard some of the other reviews of this product as they have been transferred by Amazon.com to this product when they were written for another product -- no fault of the reviewers. Amazon.com does not currently recognize the need for different reviews of different editions of the same work. This review is of the edition of William Blake's Marriage of Heaven and Hell published by U Chicago Press (2011) for the Bodelian library and edited by Michael Phillips. Some of these other reviews really need to be deleted as they are completely irrelevant to this specific product. I will be writing here about the hardcover edition. I have not yet seen a copy of the paperback edition.

This beautiful and professionally-bound U Chicago edition of MHH appears to be a cover to cover facsimile of the Bodelian's copy of Marriage of Heaven and Hell. I mean "cover to cover" quite literally: the image posted here as the cover is a full-color photographic reproduction of a nineteenth-century binding, wear marks and all. Upon opening the book you will find a full-color reproduction of the inside cover, handwriting, bookstamp, and all. The next page -- which is a blank page in the original -- is again reproduced exactly, water stains and all. What you will be purchasing with this edition, then, is an exact reproduction of Copy B of the Marriage of Heaven and Hell from cover to cover, with the addition of Phillips's extensive introduction, textual transcription, notes, commentary, a checklist of copies, and bibliography. There's simply nothing like it; not even the edition published by the William Blake Trust for the Illuminated Books series. Owning this book is as close to owning an original copy of the Marriage of Heaven and Hell as you can get.

The William Blake Archive does have Copy B of the Marriage of Heaven and Hell online with a textual transcription, so you can preview the specific contents of the reproductions there. This edition, however -- being a full, cover to cover reproduction of the book owned by the Bodelian -- includes several additional plates that aren't part of the same sequence of images available on the Blake archive website (though probably available by selecting the individual plate and clicking "compare"). These additional images include several different copies of what is Plate 14 in the Bodelian copy with alternate copies of a few other plates from the MHH (such as A Song of Liberty and one of the Memorable Fancies), and a copy of "Our End is Come" preceding the text of MHH. You can read more details about Copy B of the MHH on the William Blake Archive website.

Overall, well worth the price and a good purchase even if you already own the William Blake Trust's edition. I think this volume represents the future of Blake publishing: professional facsimile editions of each individual copy.
HASH(0x8cd51e28) von 5 Sternen Get the copy editided by Michael Phillips 1. Januar 2016
Von Ancient DIY'er - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
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.

HASH(0x8cd58120) von 5 Sternen NOTE: 3 pages! 2. November 2012
Von Daniel J. Prince - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I do not understand why, but this is not the entire book. It is only three pages and only contains the Proverbs of Hell. I wish I noticed that before I bought it. The whole book is available online for free, so don't bother with this incomplete version.

HASH(0x8cd58018) von 5 Sternen Buy a different edition! 25. November 2010
Von pandajama - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Good grief -- the other reviewers of this book clearly did not buy it, but are arguing about Blake's theology and using this Website to do it.

I have no comment on the poem. It needs no defense and has fully established itself in Western culture.

But as for the *book*, the object you hold in your hands and look at, I do have a few words. This is a very poorly produced, poorly bound, amateurishly laid out book containing appalling reproductions of the art. It was pretty obviously created in Microsoft Word and bound at the equivalent of a Kinko's. For twenty bucks you can do a lot better. I'm returning my edition.

Von bellaghost - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This was considered the work of a mad man when it was first published, I would compare it to dante's inferno in places, the art work was breakthruough for its time. I think it is the work of a man way ahead of his time. Written when revolution was in the air, it is still revelant today.
