London - Oxford University Press, 1922 Book. Good. Hardcover. William Blake's enchanting illustrations for the poetry of Thomas Gray. Blake is considered to be a visionary artist who was at one and the same time impossible to classify and yet utterly distinctive. All of the qualities that make him so are on display in this series of illustrations. Rich in the fantastic, and with undercurrents of the occult, the drawings are nevertheless intimate. Like all the best illustrations, they draw the reader in with their apparent informality, and yet add an numinous sense of fantasy to the poems they illustrate. Gray, perhaps appropriately, is unique in his own way. While the collected works published during his life amount to fewer than 1,000 lines, he is considered the greatst English poet of his day. His Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard was perhaps the most admired poem of his day, and remains one of the most quoted works in the English language. A volume displaying the combined genius of two of the great ... Read more
