The devil speaks

When one first lays eyes on the painting, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell they cannot help but wonder where might the idea originated. The work of art is based off a poem written by William Blake. The poem is quite intriguing as it alludes to a mix of good and evil or good within the ugly, “Roses are planted where thorns grow”(Blake 6). This relates to Mary shelley’s Frankenstein as Doctor Frankenstein’s creation is seen as evil to most but is good or heaven to him. The work of art mainly takes the decribed scene within the book and the theme and properly paints what is described, as an argument or a clash of Heaven and hell, as there is metion of honey bees then serpants (Blake 8,17), which could be viewed as condratictions on there own as they both have sweet and sour qualitys.
