Jerusalem Blake @ elimae

Jerusalem Blake
Giambattista Marino
translated by AE Reiff

This letter, translated from the Spanish replies to a letter he had received telling of the holes Blake gouged in the plate of his Jerusalem when it was not given its due, and of other poets like Hopkins who burned or destroyed their work. In fact only five copies of Blake's long poem were ever printed, and this privately in Blake's house by himself and his wife. Only one copy, filled with the most extreme illustrations, was ever truly finished and colored. No other text exists in only one finished state, but even that was marred by the passion of the artist. here. More Jerusalem here.
