For Blake, religion and politics, intellect and emotion, mind and body were both unified and in conflict with each other: his work is expressive of his personal mythology, and his methods of conveying it were integral to its meaning.

There is no comparison with reading books such as Jerusalem, America, and Songs of Innocence and of Experience in Blakes own medium, infused with his sublime and exhilarating colors. Tiny figures and forms dance among the lines of the text, flames appear to burn up the page, and dense passages of Biblical-sounding text are brought to a jarring halt by startling images of death, destruction, and liberation.

Blakes hope that his books would obtain wide circulation was unfulfilled: some exist only in unique copies and none was printed in more than very small numbers. Now, for the first time, the plates from the William Blake Trusts Collected Edition have been brought together in a single volume, with transcripts of the texts and an introduction by the noted scholar David Bindman.

A major retrospective exhibition of Blakes work can be seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (March-June 2001). 400 color illustrations. Includes:JerusalemSongs of Innocence and of ExperienceAll Religions are OneThere is No Natural ReligionThe Book of ThelThe Marriage of Heaven and HellVisions of the Daughters of AlbionAmerica a ProphecyEurope a ProphecyThe Song of LosMilton a PoemThe Ghost of AbelOn Homers Poetry [and] On VirgilLaocoonThe First Book of UrizenThe Book of AhaniaThe Book of Los
