Overview

'The Marriage of Heaven and Hell' is the most overt statement Blake ever wrote in prose of his beliefs and the radical, revolutionary part of this text are 'The Proverbs of Hell.''No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings. You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough. Prisons are built with stones of Law, brothels with bricks of Religion. Prudence is a rich, ugly old maid courted by Incapacity. Exuberance is Beauty. 'A superb insight into Blake's beliefs and essential for a full understanding of 'The Songs of Innocence and Experience.'
