    1. Am not IA fly like thee Or art not thouA man like me Out of all the poetry I have read, these four lines are amongst my favourite They have stuck with me over several years and seem to resonate within me I ve even considered having them tattooed onto my arm Why these lines You may ask.It s simple really they say so much Different readings can be made here, but the one I see most strongly is man talking to nature Man questions it he asks if he is the same as nature and if nature is the same as hi [...]

    2. Tyger Tyger burning bright, In the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful symmetry I don t think I would dare give any collection of poems that contains the above lines anything less than five stars Luckily, although every poem isn t a winner for me cough Laughing Song cough , there are so many immortal poems in this collection that I don t feel the least bit guilty for giving the collection the full five stars I started collecting some of my favorite lines to pu [...]

    3. Billy Blake Who Made Thee Poet Poet, burning bright, In the stanzas of the night What romantic coquetry, Could frame thy fearful poetry In what distant when or whys, roll d the epic of thine eyes On wet verse dare he aspire What poet s hand, robs Shelly s pyre And what meter, what art,Could twist the cadence of thy heart And when thy heart began to beat,What dread iambs what dread feet What the motif what the type, In what belly was thy gripe What the image what simile, Dare its deadly metaphors [...]

    4. Folly is an endless maze Tangled roots perplex her ways How many have fallen there They stumble all night over bones of the dead And feel they know not what but care And wish to lead others, when they should be led William Blake, The Voice of the Ancient Bard The smile of a child The face of a lamb The purity of maternal love Solidarity These are images chosen by Blake to convey his thoughts on innocence When I think of innocence, I cannot help picturing in my head the greenest meadows, sheltere [...]

    5. Well, one lousy review can t do Blake s poems any justice, not unless you re flush with time and the soul of a poet, yourself I can say, however, that the title kinda gives the whole gig away The first section is rife with allusions to Jesus and the second is full of wry and rather sarcastic religious revolutionary insights that I clearly appreciate much than the innocent ones Yes, love should be shown No, life should not be this dreary and repressed thing I particularly love how Blake uses lim [...]

    6. I adore William Blake s poetry and this illustrated collection is fantastic Unlike other British poets from centuries back like John Donne for example , his text is usually far easier to read even without a thesaurus and always delightful and full of imagery a Must

    7. My first brush with Blake was through the impeccable poem London than a decade back Since then, I d got to read poems of his, all carefully chosen by the academicians, quickly putting him in my list of favorite poets Then before I reached my twenties, I read this little collection, and liked it immensely.Songs of Innocence was what I was looking for, with its na ve outlook on life, the idyllic pictures of innocence I was unwilling to leave behind on my trek to youth I was enad and still am by [...]

    9. William Blake s short poems profess a narrative far beyond what actually exists on the page They communicate with incredible power and economy, smashing to smithereens the false structures of existing beliefs and opinions His poems are like gravel thrown into a pool, ripples radiating outwards indefinitely, stirring everything they touch.

    10. Esteticamente este livrinho uma preciosidade Edi o bilingue, inclui reprodu es dos poemas originais e gravuras alusivas a cada um deles, cria es do pr prio Blake, que antes de ser poeta j era ilustrador A boa conjuga o das ilustra es com a simbologia e os jogos sonoros, fazem destes poemas uma obra nica, a fazer lembrar os livros infantis que encontrava l por casa guardados pelos meus pais O ritmo e as repeti es conferem lhes uma deliciosa musicalidade, ali s, consta que o autor tinha por h bito [...]

    11. Dobar je Blejk, ima svoj stil i vidi se da je beskrajno talentovan Ideje u ovoj zbirci, poruke i realizacija su mo dosta jaki, iskreni i podsticu na razmisljanje i introspekciju Iskren da budem nije bas my cup of tea ali nisam se ni muci citajuci ga.

    12. Maybe it s sacrilege, maybe it isn t, but I ve never been a fan of Blake, artwork or poetry shrugs It could be b c I studied him alongside many whom I felt were vastly superior Byron, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats, BURNS, SCOTT in caps b c LOVE my Irish poets , Hopkins came a bit later and is considered Victorian, but I don t care b c LOVE him, too The just man justices Indeed, he does So yeah for me, Blake doesn t measure up.

    15. Wow.I know, I m very purply in my prose when I talk about books, and I have a tendency to say everything is beautiful I know this probably takes away from the impact of when I really find something life changingly perfect Do not let my larkety la ti da writing style in reviews, however, stop you from putting down whatever you re reading, and immediately adding this precious book to the store of books you ve read.I can honestly say that, if the other things William Blake wrote are as beautiful an [...]

    16. Blake s Songs of Innocence and Experience 1794 juxtapose the innocent, pastoral world of childhood against an adult world of corruption and repression while such poems as The Lamb represent a meek virtue, poems like The Tyger exhibit opposing, darker forces Thus the collection as a whole explores the value and limitations of two different perspectives on the world Many of the poems fall into pairs, so that the same situation or problem is seen through the lens of innocence first and then experie [...]

    17. Full of beautiful poems which intend to express human spirit restrained by conservative rules.Besides, I could feel the burning desires the poet wanted to express Among the poems I appreciated THE GARDEN OF LOVEI laid me down upon a bank,Where Love lay sleeping I heard among the rushes dankWeeping, weeping.Then I went to the heath and the wild,To the thistles and thorns of the waste And they told me how they were beguiled,Driven out, and compelled to the chaste.I went to the Garden of Love,And s [...]

    19. Amazing read You might feel a bit bored of the overly joyous innocence poems, but when you start reading the experience poems, the book becomes perfectly balanced My favorites were of course in the experience chapter I loved the Clod and the Pebble It really was the ultimate poem of contrast Love seeketh not itself to please,Nor for itself hath any care,But for another gives its ease,And builds a heaven in hell s despair So sung a little clod of clay,Trodden with the cattle s feet,But a pebble o [...]

    20. When my mother died I was very young, And my father sold me while yet my tongue Could scarcely cry weep weep weep weep So your chimneys I sweep in soot I sleep There s little Tom Dacre, who cried when his head That curled like a lamb s back, was shaved, so I said, Hush, Tom never mind it, for when your head s bare, You know that the soot cannot spoil your white hair And so he was quiet, that very night, As Tom was a sleeping he had such a sight That thousands of sweepers, Dick, Joe, Ned, Jack, W [...]

    21. William Blake, my favorite poet of all time Always overshadowed by his fellow Romantic contemporaries, such as Wordsworth, much to my dismay and the detriment of poetry lovers everywhere.Songs of Innocence and Experience is a must read period, regardless of genres Anyone with an artistic soul will only benefit from its beauty and perfection It is truly an enriching experience.The Chimney Sweeper is my personal favorite I cry every time I read it without fail.

    22. Como deixa claro o t tulo o livro dividido em duas inst ncias,a primeira de poemas singelos que n o s o muito do meu apetecimento e a segunda que o mais fino exemplar do romantismo ingl s ao qual Blake iniciou poeticamente e pelo qual jorro as.

    23. 2.7 STARS I did really like some of these but the majority of them just went straight over my head to be honest

    24. William Blake is my favorite poet ever And London is the best of this collection, maybe my favorite poem of all time.This is one of the rare times in which I have to thank school.

    25. Just for fun, let s do A Blick of Blake Or, Spot The Blake Allusion.Let me explain This is inspired by Friend Dawrin8u s Poem Review of Songs of Innocence And of Experience See, every time I hear Blake I hear Daniel Amos See, Daniel Amos is was an influential beatlesque artsy xian rock band who had their hay day in the 80 s And they were slightly Blake soaked It s not like I ve actually read Blake beyond a few things in that course on the Romantics, but, well, I ve got this totally contingent pe [...]
