The Book of Urizen, copy G, c. 1818. Plate 18 (18)



Лист 18

Д. Смирнов-Садовский:

8. Шар, наполненный кровью живой,
Из густых разрастался корней;
На ветру колыхались волокна,
Молоко, кровь и слёзы струились,
И в слезах от боли всевечной,
Трепеща, как пенные волны,
Образ женщины бледной предстал
Перед ликом бренным Пророка..

9. Вечность вся содрогнулась при виде
Первой женщины, что, отделившись
От мужского начала, парила
Перед Лосом, как облако снега.

10. Изумлённые, ошеломлённые,
В жутком страхе застыли Бессмертные
Перед ликом жены отделившейся

Plate 18

William Blake:

8. The globe of life blood trembled
Branching out into roots;
Fib’rous, writhing upon the winds;
Fibres of blood, milk and tears;
In pangs, eternity on eternity.
320 At length in tears & cries imbodied
A female form trembling and pale
Waves before his deathy face

9. All Eternity shudderd at sight
Of the first female now separate
Pale as a cloud of snow
Waving before the face of Los

10. Wonder, awe, fear, astonishment,
Petrify the eternal myriads;
At the first female form now separate

On design:

Sector E plate Illustration: Four figures who may be the Eternals, three male and one either male or female, are suspended, as if in a cloud, over a green area that looks like the earth below, its surface curved like part of a globe. They may be erecting a tent between their world and Urizen's (Plate 19, lines 3-12). Between the group of figures above and the globe below are streaks of cloud and light that may suggest sunrise or sunset. Clockwise from the right the figures are: (1) the head of a male with long, white, flowing hair and beard and closed eyes; (2) a male, naked from the waist up, reaching down toward the earth with his left arm and hand, his fingers emitting streams of some substance; (3) the head of a second male with long, curly hair and beard and closed eyes; (4) the head of a youthful boy or girl. The garments of all the figures seem to swirl together behind them; figures (1) and (2) may be clothed together in one garment. At the top left of the design are the head, neck, and wings of an eagle in profile. Component (Sector A) Keywords: eagle head wing The head, neck, and wings of an eagle are seen in profile. Component (Sector A) Keywords: male female head facing down young eyes closed gown drapery hovering The head of a youthful boy or girl looks down toward the earth, perhaps with eyes closed. Component (Sector AC) Keywords: male beard old facing forward long hair curly hair head eyes closed gown drapery hovering The head of a male with long, curly hair and beard and eyes closed appears just left of the central figure. Component (Sector E) Keywords: male partly nude bending forward head down facing down arm reaching downward arm braced fingers gown drapery hovering creating curly hair A male, naked from the waist up, braced on his right arm, bends forward and reaches down toward the earth with his left arm; his fingers emit streams of some substance. His clothing, more drapery than gown, swirls out behind him; it appears to be the same garment as the one that clothes the figure on the far right. His hair is short and somewhat curly. Component (Sector BD) Keywords: male old beard head facing forward long hair eyes closed gown drapery hovering The head of a man with long, flowing white beard and closed eyes appears right of the central figure. The end of his beard seems to touch the earth below and to combine with the substance emitted by the fingers of the figure to the left. Component (Sector C) Keywords: earth globe Four figures hover over a curved area of earth, like part of the globe. Component (Sector E) Keywords: cloud sunrise sunset Four figures hover in a cloud-like area above the earth in lighting that suggests sunrise or sunset. Component (Sector D) Keywords: curtain flesh streams of gore From the central figure's fingers streams a substance that may be the fabric of the tent erected by the Eternals, its curtains, flesh, or Blakean streams of gore. Component (Sector D) Keywords: tent From the central figure's fingers streams a substance that may be the fabric of the tent erected by the Eternals, its curtains, flesh, or Blakean streams of gore.

Sector AB interlinear Illustration: A vine separates the two columns of text from one another. Its tendrils and leaves, one loopy, others serpentine or flame-like, are extended to fill the spaces around short lines and at the end of the text on this plate. A flower, independent of the central vine, forms from an extension of the "d" at the end of "appear'd" (line 10). A single bird flies above "a winterly" in line 6.
