About this Event:

Leading Blake scholar Michael Phillips introduces his new edition of the poet’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. Phillips throws light on the importance of Blake’s seminal work and shows how it evolved over time. The new edition includes a complete facsimile of the copy of the original work held by the Bodleian Library in Oxford. Drawings from Blake’s notebook and working proof impressions are also reproduced to show how the work evolved. The Marriage of Heaven and Hell was produced with a revolutionary new technique, illuminated printing. A plate from each of the eight other surviving copies of the original work is reproduced to show how Blake altered the way each copy was finished over a period of 30 years.

Phillips is honorary fellow of the Centre for 18th-Century Sudies at the University of York. He has published extensively on Blake.
