Unjustly forgotten 10 Feb. 2002
By M. - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the reprint of the edition published in 1797, with engravings of William Blake. The poem itself, enormously popular in the 18th century, is now shrouded in obscurity, and it stays in print only due to Blake's illustrations. But despite of its unpopularity, I found it quite enjoyable. It is best read in one sitting, without interrupting the constant flow of ideas and thoughts. It is a meditation, at once introspective and all-encompassing, a contemplation of Death, Time, Friendship, and Immortality of man. Granted, it does tend to drag on too much in the last chapter, but the first ones are so good they're worthy of being memorized. Blake's engravings, surrounding the text as a frame, capture the essense of the poem and at the same time enhance it, adding to it even more depth. The poem's abstract concepts take shape, making some passages more memorable. (This edition includes a commentary on the pictures' symbolism.) The book is worth getting for the engravings alone; it is a work of art in every sense of the word.

An interesting look at our past 13 Dec. 2013
By Ken Bollinger - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this as a reference to an inscription at the Library of Congress. Apparently this was a very popular book around the time of our countries founding. This version has the original paintings/drawings that accompanied the original. It was an intriguing look at our past. BTW the Inscription was "Too low they build, who build beneath the stars"

This is 12 pages, with no illustrations, and is just one very small section of the entire work. I think I'll be returning this one.
