Publisher's Summary

At the end of his life, William Blake (1757-1827) gave up hope of being widely understood, but the twentieth century brought to his work a new and intense interest and acclaim.

Included in this collection are well-known poems such as "Tyger! Tyger! Burning Bright" and "A Poison Tree"; longer poems such as "The Everlasting Gospel", "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell"; Blake's principal prose work; and an assortment of epigrams and short satire.

Poet, artist, and mystic, Blake wrote, "I must Create a System or be enslav'd by another Man's." Create he did.
