"This thoroughly revised Second Edition of a perennial favorite in the Norton Critical Editions series, energized by recent scholarly discoveries and new links to the William Blake Archive (blakearchive.org) and other online resources, maintains its predecessor's emphasis on the visual and verbal artistry of Blake's self-published works in illuminated printing. The new edition features more than a hundred designs, sixteen in color; freshly annotated and re-edited complete texts of the illuminated books, now including the full text of Jerusalem; and a generous selection of Blake's other writings, inviting both novice and advanced readers to explore the amazing range of his achievement as a poet and thinker" "An expanded "Criticism" section presents twenty appraisals of Blake's work from his own time to the present. New to "Comments by Contemporaries" is Robert Hunt's devastating review of Blake's one-artist show in 1809, to which Blake responded with vitriolic epigrams and the creation of a major villain in Jerusalem." "Also included are an Introduction, a guide to Key Terms, a discussion of Textual Technicalities, a chronology of Blake's Life and Times, a Selected Bibliography, three maps, an Index of Sources, and an Index of Titles and First Lines."--Jacket

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since he began publishing essays, reviews, and books about Blake's composite visual and verbal art in 1960, John E. Grant has widely and deeply influenced the field of Blake studies, exhorting scholars and students to rethink old assumptions and insisting that those considering the words must attend to the pictures and those studying the visual art must read with care both Blake's poetry and works he illustrated. Over the last four decades Grant has shown by example how subtle, learned, and inventive Blake scholarship can be."--Jacket
