The Works of William Blake is a compilation of Blake's poetry with some selected excerpts of his longer prose writing. It does not include any of the illuminations that are present alongside many of his works, and also includes The French Revolution, Book the First between The Marriage of Heaven and Hell and A Song of Liberty. This is a chronological presentation but somewhat misleading as Blake issued A Song of Liberty alongside The Marriage of Heaven and Hell in his later issues of that work.

I read this book as my copy during a book club that covered the Prophetic Works of William Blake. This left it necessary to refer to other sources as Milton and Jerusalem are not contained in full within this edition. This edition also lacks the illustrations that Blake painted alongside the text which become crucial during an examination of Blake.

Luckily blakearchive.org exists and I was able to source these items for study.

Overall this is a decent introduction to the poetic works of William Blake, but for a detailed and critical examination of the Gnostic Saint, look for a more complete and illustrated compilation of his works. ( )
