In about 1820, Blake revised For Children: The Gates of Paradise, giving the work a new title, reworking the design plates at least twice, and adding three new text plates at the end (19-21). All twenty-one plates are intaglio etchings/engravings. Plates 19-20 contain brief interpretive statements keyed by number to the preceding design plates. The final plate is addressed to Satan as the “God of This [fallen] World.” (Text from the William Blake Archive, with thanks.)
