About the book:

Since its first publication in 1965, this edition has been widely hailed as the best available text of Blake's poetry and prose. Comparing it to other Blake texts, it has fuller textual annotations; and incorporates a remarkable number of new readings, including an almost complete recovery of the suppressed or altered passages in Jerusalem and many new readings of hitherto dubious passages in the manuscript, including many in The Four Zoas. The crucial preliminary problem in establishing Blake's text is simple to make out what Blake wrote, including what he wrote before he deleted the manuscript or erased the engraving (or copper plate script). Erdman has used modern aids such as infrared photography, microphotography and a powerful magnifying glass to help his own sharp and experienced eyes, but his real achievement has been simply to look at the physical realities of Blake's text more closely and intelligently than any previous editor. This revised edition includes the latest work on variants, deleted lines, arrangements of poems and dating, and eighty-two pages of critical commentary by Harold Bloom. The volume has been awarded the distinction of "An Approved Edition" by the Committe on Scholarly Editions of the Modern Language Association.
