34 editions published between 1815 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poeten og billedskaperen William Blake (1757-1827) bekjempet alt som kunne innsnevre bevisstheten, var motstander av rasjonalismen og skapte en personlig mytologi som belyser motsetningene og samspillet i menneskesinnet. Dette belyses særlig i «Milton», som beskriver en poet som fra sin plass blant de evige reiser til «de eviges død», det vil si jorden. Her skal han rette opp i en feiltagelse – at menneskets seksuelle lyst stammer fra fallet. Verket er illustrert med Blakes egne fargetrykk. Gjendiktet av og med innledning og kommentarer av Geir Uthaug
