Item Description...
Dante's "Divine Comedy" captivated medieval readers, and each successive era remains spellbound by its sublime portraits of Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. In the early nineteenth century, one of England's great epic poets paid tribute to the Italian master's work. Gifted at both poetry and painting, William Blake transformed more than a hundred of Dante's visions into sketches, engravings, and brilliant watercolors. This collection features all of his distinctive interpretations of Dante's immortal trilogy.
Although Blake labored in poverty and obscurity all his life, he is recognized today as one of the preeminent artists and poets of the English-speaking world. An 1825 commission from patron John Linnell enabled him to focus on illustrating Dante's tales--the type of visionary work to which his talents were ideally suited. The artist spent the last three years of his life creating these images, which range from completely finished pieces to rough sketches. Blake's highly original approach offers not only an excellent introduction to Dante's allegorical tales, but also a new and fresh perspective for those already familiar with the" Divine Comedy."

Delusion  Feb 6, 2010
Purtroppo il mio voto è assolutamente negativo. Mi aspettavo le 102 illustrazioni in Full Color, ma invece sono molto meno
quelle complete. Le altre sembrano schizzi, o prove d'autore, o opere incomplete.
Diciamo che ce ne sono 10 o 15 per il resto......
A Good Book if You Like Blake's Art  Jan 30, 2010
I was a copy of Dante's Divine Comedy as a birthday present for a friend who mentioned they would like to have one with the William Blake illustrations. It's hard to the actual Divine Comedy with these illustrations, but then I stumbled upon this. It's nice because you have all of the illustrations (even ones unfinished or not in the original edition of the book with his illustrations). Since my friend already had a copy, I decided to buy this! He loved it and I'm glad I bought it. The quality of the pictures is excellent. A great coffee table book for sure!
