The Traveller in the Evening is a study of Blake's poetry, art, and thought during the last years of his life, from 1818 to 1827. Morton Paley considers some of Blake's major accomplishments, including Blake's wood engravings for Thornton's Virgil, the separate plate known as The Laocoon, 101 illustrations to Dante's IDivine Comedy, and the great series of Illustrations to the Book of Job. Paley shows us a Blake who has
flowered during his late years; a Blake who is free of any 'systems', including his own.
