Since it was first published in 1965, David V. Erdman's edition has been widely hailed as easily the best available text of Blake's poetry and prose. Comparing it to other Blake texts, Michael J. Tolley in Southern Review observed that it has "very much fuller textual annotations; and incorporates a remarkable number of new readings, including an almost complete recovery of the suppressed or altered passages in Jerusalem and many new readings of hitherto dubious passages in the manuscript, including many in The Four Zoas."
This newly revised edition includes the latest work on variants, deleted lines, arrangements of poems and dating, and eighty-two pages of critical commentary by Harold Bloom. The volume has been awarded the disctinction of "An Approved Edition" by the Committee on Scholarly Editions of the Modern Language Association.

In his prophetic books, William Blake (1757-1827) was a visionary who can be compared without blasphemy to the prophets of the Old Testament. In his life as a citizen of London, he was an unreconstructed revolutionary of the human spirit. And in the poems of the Songs of Innocence and of Experience, he was the purest and most penetrating lyricist in the language, Among the great English poets, he was and remains the one unclassifiable original.

Blake was one of the finest craftsmen of his time, an artist for whom art and poetry were inextricably linked. He was an independent and rebellious thinker, who abhorred pretension and falsity in others. His Songs of Innocence are products of this innocent imagination untainted by worldliness, while the Songs of Experience resulted from his feelings of indignation and pity for the sufferings of mankind. The Songs of Innocence and of Experience, containing some of Blake's finest and best-loved poems, are present here in the form which satisfied the high expectations of his poetic and artistic aspirations. The fifty-four plates which Blake originally etched and coloured by hand, are faithfully reproduced with the same delicacy and dimensions as the artist created them.

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.The twenty-seven colour plates are reproduced from one of only nine remaining copies of the work.Keynes comments upon each of the plates, discussing Blake's argument, and provides a helpful and enlightening introduction.

The tigers that crouched in Blake's baleful spiritual forest, the roses and sunflowers whose mystical properties he rendered with such accurate music, the angels with whom he wrestled and who delivered prophetic books to him late at night, were literally more real to him than the London, where, in the period of the French Revolution, he lived out his life of poverty and indignant isolation. One of England's great lyric poets; one of Europe's great visionaries.

The personal issues with which he wrestled seemed to him to be also the salient problems of human life. They include questions of the proper place of intellectual control in the personality, the place of impulse, the relations between authority and those it controls (and therefore between elders and children), the relations of the sexes, the folly of moral generalities (one law for the lion and the ox), the poison of jealousy, and the overwhelming importance of forgiveness.
Characterized by an extraordinarily imaginative language and a forcefulness and suppleness of rhythms, Blake's poetry possesses a remarkable muscularity and exuberance. Even at its most difficult it excites, while never losing contact with the ordinary realities of life. This volume contains all Blake's poetry with full annotation and a glossary of proper names.

The nature of William Blake's genius and of his art is most completely expressed in his Illuminated Books. In order to give full and free expression to his vision Blake invented a method of printing that enabled him to create works in which words and images combine to form pages uniquely rich in content and beautiful in form. It is only through the pages as originally conceived and published by the poet himself that Blake's meaning can be fully experienced. 286 pages, softcover from Princeton Paperbacks.
