[Plate 15]

The Book of Urizen, copy G, c. 1818. Plate 15(16)

Лист 15

Д. Смирнов-Садовский:

Так раздвоился Вечный Пророк
Пред Уризена образом бренным,
И за облаком, скрытом во мраке
Нескончаемых зимних ночей,
Бездна Лоса достигла предела
И предстала для взора Бессмертных
Как неясное разъединенье
В стороне от нетленности вечной, —
Как при помощи стёкол особых
В безграничных пучинах вселенной
Глаз находит иные миры, —
Взор явил им и Лоса, и шар
Из трепещущей крови живой.

Plate 15

William Blake:

Thus the Eternal Prophet was divided
Before the death-image of Urizen
For in changeable clouds and darkness
In a winterly night beneath,
The Abyss of Los stretch’d immense:
And now seen, now obscur’d, to the eyes
Of Eternals, the visions remote
Of the dark seperation appear’d.
310 As glasses discover Worlds
In the endless Abyss of space,
So the expanding eyes of Immortals
Beheld the dark visions of Los,
And the globe of life blood trembling


Примечания

Лист 15. Под текстом: три (или четыре в копиях G и J) мужские фигуры (Бессмертные?) нависают над «бездной Лоса», средний из них (самый молодой) рукой касается земли. Справа и слева от него два седобородых старца.

306. Бездна Лоса достигла предела... — у Блейка буквально: «Бездна Лоса растянулась безмерно» (The Abyss of Los stretch’d immense). Под «бездной Лоса» имеется в виду пространство между Уризеном и миром Бессмертных.

313—314. Взор явил им и Лоса, и шар / Из трепещущей крови живой... — вероятно, эти строки иллюстрированы на Листе 17.


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.
