A new re-interpretation of the classic mystical poetic work by the English poet and printmaker William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell is a must-listen for any serious literati or poet - as featured in the movie Dead Man by Jim Jarmusch, starring Johnny Depp.
Blake's groundbreaking work may be best known for the prophetic chapter "Proverbs of Hell":
"Drive your cart and your plough over the bones of the dead"
"The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom"
"Prudence is a rich ugly old maid courted by Incapacity"
Timeless aphorisms combined with a pioneering visionary Romantic spirit make The Marriage of Heaven and Hell a must-listen for any serious poet or literati.
The book was composed between 1790 and 1793 in the period of ferment and political conflict immediately following the French Revolution.
