Synopsis

The Marriage of Heaven and Hell - as Featured in the Jim Jarmusch Film 'Dead Man', Starring Johnny Depp!

A new and strikingly illustrated visual 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-read for any serious literati or poet. Narrated by award winning producer-narrator Jason Rosette

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"

(and more)

Timeless aphorisms combined with a pioneering visionary Romantic spirit make 'The Marriage of Heaven and Hell' a must-read 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.
