Etched in intaglio on six plates, The Book of Ahania continues with the format, themes, and imagery of The Book of Urizen. Ahania, who represents Urizen’s female portion, is less central to the action than Fuzon, a son of Urizen who revolts against his father. The narrative is one of Blake’s many versions of the contentions between repression and liberation. In this instance, the consequences are dire, as Ahania indicates in her concluding lament.
