Summary
Jerusalem, the longest of Blake{u2019}s illuminated epic poems, aims to sum up his entire religious and artistic philosophy. Blake{u2019}s own mythological characters, including Jerusalem and Albion (female and male manifestations of the human spirit who long to be united again) and Los (a manifestation of artistic imagination), join a cast that includes, Jesus, John Newton and others. Blake expounds on matters scientific, spiritual and sexual in a poem that is divided into four chapters addressed in turn to the public, Jews, Deists and Christians. The work concludes with a post-apocalyptic vision. Blake{u2019}s characteristic drawing style is on full display throughout the poem in one hundred relief-etched plates, many of which display Blake{u2019}s mastery of white-line etching
