The necessities of the case have required the repetition in the present work of the substance of some notes already printed but hardly published in the other. I mean no disrespect to Mr. Wright's edition, but it is, and professes to be, scarcely other than a reproduction of Marsden's, with abridgment of his notes. As regards geographical elucidations, I may point to the explanation of the name Gheluchelan i.

An annotated list of characters supplies brief information on the main characters in each story. As with any study guide, it is recommended that the reader read the story beforehand, and have a copy of the story being discussed available for quick reference.
A selection of critical extracts, derived from previously published material, follows each character list. In most cases, these extracts represent the best analysis available from a number of leading critics.
Because these extracts are derived from previously published material, they will include the original notations and references when available. Each extract is cited, and readers are encouraged to check the original publication as they continue their research.
He is the author of over 20 books, and the editor of more than 30 anthologies of literary criticism. The Gnosis of Angels, Dreams, and Resurrection His most recent books include Shakespeare: Professor Bloom earned his Ph. The most considerable poem left in manuscript from his later years is The Everlasting Gospel, a series of notebook fragments on the theme of the necessity for the forgiveness of sins.
There are powerful passages among these fragments, but they do not add anything to Jerusalem as imaginative thought, and Blake did not bother to arrange them in any definite form. Vengeance and every similar mode of hindering another can have no part in an imaginative morality, and for Blake there is no other morality worthy of the name.
At about the time he wrote The Everlasting Gospel, Blake reengraved a little emblem-book, The Gates of Paradise, which he had first engraved as early asadding a number of rhymed couplets and an epilogue in two quatrains to the engravings and their 10 inscriptions. The tone of this is unique in Blake, and I have not found the equivalent in any other poet.
There is enormous irony here, mitigated by a gentle and mocking pity for the great antagonist, the Satan adored as Jesus and Jehovah by the religious of this world.
Blake is past argument here; he has gone beyond prophetic anger and apocalyptic impatience. The Accuser is everywhere and at all times apparently triumphant, yet he is a delusion and so but a dunce.
He cannot distinguish the phenomenal garment from the Real Man, the Imagination, and his spouse Rahab is only a delusion also. States change; individuals endure.
The Accuser is the dream of a lost traveler in the phenomenal world, but Blake has found his way home, and need not dream. The couple had united their enterprises with their lives in Westminster in October of It was an area where many merchants and tradesmen did business.
The faith of his parents is uncertain; they were Christian—they were married in one Anglican church and baptized most or all of their children in another—but they did not always quite follow the Anglican or the Catholic Church.
Still, it seems his parents did encourage the young artist: Blake learned the basics of reading and writing in school.
In the next five years, he gained a background in art history and many skills. On his own he was a great reader, reading avidly the Bible, Greek classics, and the works of Milton and Shakespeare. He was writing as early as orwhen he began what would become his Poetical Sketches. Inat the age of 25, he married Catherine Boucher, the daughter of a vegetable farmer.
Their marriage would last some 45 years but produce no children. This book, Poetical Sketches, containing the work of some 16 years, was released in Throughout this period, he continued to create and to exhibit artwork on both religious and secular themes; inhe wrote An Island in the Moon, satirizing his progressive friends of the Joseph Johnson circle.
Also inwith friend and fellow apprentice James Parker, Blake opened his own print shop; this would eventually enable him to publish his own poetry.
Each illustration would be colored by hand. This was a very timeconsuming process and limited the number of copies Blake could produce and thus his income and audience.
Blake supported himself and his wife through engraving by his own process and through providing engraved illustrations on commission; the latter projects resulted in connections between Blake and many radical thinkers of the 18th century.
Walking the streets of London, he had experienced them elaborately: Blake was not the only member of his family with a clairvoyance of this sort.Supernatural agency in a poem, or a superhuman being introduced to perform some exploit.
