Facsimile of the Original Outlines Before Colouring of the Songs of Innocence and of Experience (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Facsimile of the Original Outlines Before Colouring of the Songs of Innocence and of Experience No general account, however slight, can be given of Blake's symbolism here. It is exceedingly unlikely that anyone will possess a copy of the present reproductions of the Songs who has not made some acquaintance with the interpretation of the entire symbolic system prepared by the present writer in collaboration with Mr. Yeats, and printed in the first two volumes of the only complete edition of Blake's issued by the publisher of this facsimile. In those pages, the chapter on the Songs was very brief. Its substance will be found repeated here, with several additions. Like all theinterpretation it was written then, and is re-written now, with some regret. No one willingly or cheerfully proposes to a reader and lover of Blake to turn away from the pleasure of the poetry and harass his mind by studying a prose explanation of the meaning. Yet such annoyance as is felt in the study of the vast net-work of myth and symbol to which every phrase is more or less related, turns to greater pleasure in the end. Presently the irritation of searching and comparing passes and is forgotten, while the effect remains. Then, instead of finding that the poetry of the poems has been frightened away by the symbolism, the reader perceives it to Sing with a triple music, - for now to the melody of the words and of the images is added a newer, sweeter, deeper cadence of magic potency.

Friends

FriendsYour face was lifted to the golden skyAblaze beyond the black roofs of the square,As flame on flame leapt, flourishing in airIts tumult of red stars exultantly,To the cold constellations dim and high;And as we neared, the roaring ruddy flareKindled to gold your throat and brow and hairUntil you burned, a flame of ecstasy.?The golden head goes down into the nightQuenched in cold gloom,and yet again you standBeside me now with lifted face alight,As, flame to flame, and fire to fire you burn...Then, recollecting, laughingly you turn,And look into my eyes and take my hand.

Giordano Bruno, and Aesthetic Poetry

Walter Horatio Pater (1839-1894) was an English essayist and art and literary critic. After graduating from Oxford he became acutely interested in literature, beginning to write articles and criticisms. The first of these to be printed was a brief essay upon Coleridge, contributed in 1866 to the Westminster Review. A few months later (January, 1867), his essay on Winckelmann, the first expression of his idealism, appeared in the same review. In the following year his study of Aesthetic Poetry appeared in the Fortnightly Review. By the time his philosophical novel Marius the Epicurean appeared, however, he had gathered quite a following. This, his chief contribution to literature, was published early in 1885. In 1887 he published Imaginary Portraits, a series of essays in philosophic fiction; in 1889, Appreciations, with an Essay on Style; in 1893, Plato and Platonism; and in 1894, The Child in the House. His Greek Studies and his Miscellaneous Studies were collected posthumously in 1895; his posthumous romance of Gaston de Latour in 1896; and his essays from The Guardian were privately printed in 1897.
