DESCRIPTION

This carefully crafted ebook: For the Sexes: the Gates of Paradise (Illuminated Manuscript with the Original Illustrations of William Blake) is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.The Gates of Paradise, was first published in a limited run in 1793. In 1818 W. Blake changed the title to For the Sexes: The Gates of Paradise, and added several more drawings as well as a preface and concluding verses. The seventeen emblematic drawings and their commentaries depict the life of man from birth to death: passage through the four elements (water, earth, wind and fire), hatching as a child from the mundane shell, encountering women, reaching for the moon of love (I want, I want), falling into Time’s Ocean. After several other episodes he finally arrives at the death’s door with Job’s words: I have said to the Worm: Thou art my mother and my sister. There a female figure is Weaving to Dreams the Sexual strife, And Weeping over the Web of Life. William Blake (1757 – 1827) was a British poet, painter, visionary mystic, and engraver, who illustrated and printed his own books. Blake proclaimed the supremacy of the imagination over the rationalism and materialism of the 18th-century. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age.
