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.
