Writer and religious rebel, William Blake ((1757-1827) sowed the seeds for Romanticism in his innovative poems concerning faith and the visions that inspired him throughout his life. Whether describing his own spirituality, the innocence of youth or the corruption caused by mankind, his writings depict a world in which spirits dominate and the mind is the gateway to Heaven. This collection of his greatest works spans his entire poetic life from the early, exquisite lyrics of Poetic Sketches to his Songs of Innocence and Experience - a compelling exploration of good and evil. Together, they illuminate a self-made realm that has fascinated artists and poets as diverse as Wordsworth, Coleridge, Yeats and Ginsberg.

William Blake (1757-1827) was a poet of striking originality, whose poetic world of myth and mysticism continues to fascinate. By turns a haunting lyricist, an apocalyptic visionary, and an unorthodox thinker, Blake was for years ignored or derided. Sustained by his belief in the artistic imagination, he drafted poetry, prose visions, and epigrams, and manufactured beautiful illustrated volumes of his lyrics and verse narratives. Towards the end of his life, Blake's unique and irreducible talent was recognized by a group of younger artists, who rescued much of his achievement from oblivion. This selection represents the full range of Blake's accomplishment as a poet, ranging from early Poetical Sketches to late lyrics, and including such major works as The Book of Thel, Songs of Innocence, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, Visions of the Daughters of Albion, America, Songs of Experience, and Europe. The collection is chosen from the Oxford Authors critical edition, with Michael Mason's introduction and notes providing the ideal guide to a remarkable oeuvre.

'To see a World in a Grain of Sand 'And a Heaven in a Wild Flower Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour' William Blake wrote some of the most moving and memorable verse in the English language. Deeply committed to visionary and imaginative experience, yet also fiercely engaged with the turbulent politics of his era, he is now recognised as a major contributor to the Romantic Movement. This edition presents Blake's poems in their literary categories and genres to which they belong: his much-loved lyrics, ballads, comic and satirical verse, descriptive and discursive poems, verse epistles, and, finally, his remarkable 'prophetic' poems, including the whole of his two diffuse epics, Milton and Jerusalem. Blake's poetry is intellectually challenging as well as formally inventive, and this edition has a substantial critical introduction which places his ideas in the contemporary context of the Enlightenment and the artistic reaction against its key assumptions.

Tras ser galardonada con el National Book Award por Éramos unos niños, Patti Smith crea M Train, un singular y bellísimo libro de memorias de un icono y de una época. En él, la gran artista muestra la parte más poética de su vida cotidiana como si lo hiciera a través de un caleidoscopio. Patti Smith revisita las cafeterías que más ha frecuentado a lo largo de los años y que convertía en lugares de creación, empezando por el Café 'Ino de Greenwich Village de Nueva York. Su vida de poeta, dramaturga, cantante, artista y peregrina se revela aquí como si se tratara de un mapa de carreteras. Gracias a una prosa que fluye sin contrastes de los sueños a la realidad, del pasado al presente, acompañamos a la autora en sus viajes, entramos en la Casa Azul de Frida Kahlo en México, visitamos las tumbas de Genet, Plath, Rimbaud o Mishima, somos testigos de su relación con Robert Mappelthorpe, y recordamos su matrimonio con el guitarrista Fred Sonic, la retirada de los escenarios para dedicarse a su familia y su vuelta triunfal al mundo de la música. Si alguien alguna vez soñó con acompañar a Patti Smith en sus viajes, ha llegado la hora de subirse a M Train: la experiencia merece la pena. «Cuando empecé no tenía ningún argumento. Quería escribir libre de cualquier trama o responsabilidad. Sólo quería que la obra se desplegara». Patti Smith a Francesc Peirón para La Vanguardia Reseñas: «El relato de Smith alcanza su máxima ternura cuando habla de los años con su familia en Detroit y de la muerte de su marido. Tras el nacimiento de su primer hijo, ella se sumergió en la literatura japonesa.» El Cultural (El Mundo) «Patti Smith nos ha honrado con una poética obra maestra, una espléndida invitación a abrir un cofre de los tesoros que nunca antes se había abierto.» Johnny Depp «M Train de Patti Smith se desmarca de la idea de que poseer es poseer siempre.» Javier Lorenzo Candel, infoLibre «Tan especiales son su lenguaje e imaginario que la sensación al terminarlo es de haber leído un poemario.» Rosana Ferreres, La Hormiga Remolona

Although Blake was dismissed as an eccentric by his contemporaries, his powerful and richly symbolic poetry has been a fertile source of inspiration to the many writers and artists who have followed in his footsteps. In this collection Patti Smith has collected together her personal selection of Blake's poems, including the complete poems from the famous Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience, to give a singular picture of this unique genius.
