The last is Blake’s startling vision of the biblical heaven and hell. Once this has been done, conclusions can be drawn from the example of Blake’s piece that concern not only the changing position of the Bible in western literature and thought, but also the ability of this tradition to survive no matter how subverted and desacralized its original intent and message becomes. It is this idealization of Satan as a sympathetic figure that makes him such an ideal character to appropriate from biblical tradition if the aim is to subvert it. As critics have pointed out, this reconception of Satan makes him a ready vehicle for oppositionist ideology (Schock 450).

Do not buy this book. It is nothing but a faulty reprint of the text of MHH, with no illustrations except on the cover. There is a Dover reprint (much less expensive) that presents the full facsimile of the original book, not a bad transcription of the text. This book is a scam.

Since this is a fairly serious work, the Amazon mandated choices regarding plot, mood, pace and characters really don't apply. Since Amazon groups together all reviews of books with the same title, the one to get is edited by Michael Phillips. Mr Phillips has spent almost a lifetime studying William Blake and carefully presents his insight as well as differences in various editions of the book.
To appreciate this book, one has to take into account the political and religious turmoil when it was written. Mr Phillips gives a lot of background to help understand the era.
Sorryyy
The kindle version of this is not the full work as it states "60 pages" it is 6 pages of some obscure content from the entire work.
Quellik
Specifically this Kindle version. It's not even close to the full text. Comes out at like 124kb, and the real thing is much larger.

I spent a buck on four pages of obscure poetry. I could have sampled it for free and encourage others to do so

This version of the book is very, very disappointing. The binding is not good. The paper seems cheap. The "facsimile" is black and white, and tiny. I usually don't write negative reviews, but this book was not worth my time picking it up. It is so sad that the beauty of William Blake has been desecrated by this edition.

It's not the work that I hate, it's the fact that I bought an art book, a book of artwork, to enjoy the artwork, but NOOOOO! This is a tiny child-sized book and the pictures inside have a blank white border all the way around the artwork on every page, so the actual art is cut down to 3in wide 4in. long, making it impossible to read the words or really see the drawings. It is a pointless endeavor, and I feel like I was cheated out of almost $10. I won't be buying from this particular seller again, and I buy a lot of books.
See my remarks about this and the Urizen facsimile. It might be better to have separate blow ups of the individual drawings on each page than to include the fuzzy pictures of the printed words or captions.
