Errors in the Signet Classic Edition of The Selected Poetry of Blake

In the “Selected Bibliography” on page xvii the Keynes edition of Complete Writings should be said to contain “Modernized punctuation” but not spelling. The Erdman-Stevenson edition of 1971 should be described as containing “Modernized spelling and punctuation.”

Page 133, note 16:14 should read: “ . . . the year of this Prophecy (1793) . . . .”

Page 199, note 11:32 should read: “Sin, daughter of Satan and mother of Death.”

I deny any responsibility for—or any awareness of, before they were faits accomplis—the weird montage on the front cover and the deathly prose on the back (“richly representative . . . extraordinary blending . . . vividly immediate and tantalizingly ambiguous” and so on).
