      The Angel that presided o er my birthSaid, Little creature, form d of Joy Mirth,Go love, without the help of any Thing on Earth As I ve said before, I feel a bit uncomfortable reviewing poetry I don t have the proper tools I lack the vocabulary Critiquing poetry, to me, is like critiquing a human body I don t know why one face pleases me, and another pleases me not I simply couldn t say why I find one shape shapely, and another shape misshapen When I see a pleasing face or an attractive form, I [...]

      A small collection of poems from 18th century Englishman William Blake Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, and viewed in some quarters as a madman, it wasn t until later his work was regarded as grand Along with his paintings, he would be part of the Romantic Movement , and was also strongly influenced by the Church, politics and historical revolutions Made up of the Songs of Innocence Experience , arguably his most famous work, they are charming poems, with the early ones that had me thin [...]

      This felt like visiting an old friend, as I ve read quite a bit of Blakes poetry before Still love it.

    4. Elspeth says:

      Blake focuses on religion a bit to much for my taste I do like The Tyger, but that might be from reciting it in grade school, and it being the only poem that was familiar.

    5. ✘✘ Sarah ✘✘ (former Nefarious Breeder of Murderous Crustaceans) says:

      This was my first time reading poems by William Blake and I can t say I was terribly impressed Admittedly, I don t read much poetry but I do enjoy it once in a while The main problem I had with these poems is that they made me feel like I was a 10 year old schoolgirl again They were simplistic, dreadfully unoriginal and quite boring To me Blake s poetry lacks rhythm and his verses lack fluidity Definitely not the kind of poetry I enjoy reading.

    6. Rob Dudek says:

      Cruelty has a human heart,And jealousy a human face Terror the human form divine,And Secresy the human dress.I m sensing that William Blake was a rather peculiar individual Most of his poems aren t exactly what you would call quotable, but I think that it might be because that wasn t his intention in the first place The poems themselves are quite brilliant actually as far as my mind can conceive however, in this particular volume Blake had a bit of a theme going on with a child like perception o [...]

    7. Logan Dalton says:

      William Blake was a mystic poet who was not afraid to challenge the religious and political views of his day Like the other Romantic poets, he creates beautiful images of nature especially in Songs of Innocence but he is not naive and understands the natural and moral evil that haunts the universe and provides haunting imagery of evil and demonic power Blake also brings up some interesting philosophical questions in his longer poems The Everlasting Gospel and Marriage of Heaven and Hell where he [...]

    8. Jake says:

      A fascinating collection of powerful poems that not only give you things to think about but also presents an amazing look into Blake s mind With poems covering nearly every topic it s hard to not enjoy his collected works.

      AWESSOMEparticularly for the study of tents just peel your eyes

    10. Danielle Routh says:

      And I made a rural pen,And I stain d the water clear,And I wrote my happy songsEvery child may joy to hear.

    11. Richard says:

      learned first draft was written Did he laugh His work to see makes me chuckle.

    12. Kerdel Ellick says:

      Perfection I can read it again and again, and still feel the same way.

    13. Paul says:

      This Kindle edition contains Songs of Innocence, and Songs of Experience, with The Book of Thel thrown in as a neat weird little bonus I feel like this is a pretty good introduction to William Blake, but the problem is that that s kind of it It s an introduction Not much .Don t get me wrong though, these poems are solid More or less Innocence is fairly solidly constructed even if it s all very disarmingly simple to me, and Experience doesn t progress very much further than that, but it s still p [...]

    14. Citrine says:

      I can t say that I liked the majority of Blake s poems , I found them repetitive and out of touch with the ordinary person s perceptions of life perhaps I did enjoy the cheeriness for a change , child like and innocent But the few poems that I really treasured from this work , I was deeply moved by them And as others have commented , I see why he was controversial , those were the poems I was expecting and got the most out of Here was my favorite of William Blake s by far A Poison TreeI was ang [...]

    15. E.G. Jönsson says:

      I actually listened to the edition from Svenska Ljud Classica, read by Sam Stinson Unfortunately, the reading was a little too much like a school piece for me, read without any real connection with the material, just hammering out the syllables Granted, I don t like overly emotional readings either, so I m hard to please here It was still delightful to re experience The Songs of Innocence Experience, as well as The Book of Thel Blake, the hippie, Blake, the Goth, Blake, the coiner of phrases sti [...]

    16. Cameron says:

      I was surprised by how often I was moved by the poetry in this modest collection I haven t read Blake since my teenage years and I remember back then being less impressed with his style And truthfully, I glazed through some of these poems but there s a reason why Blake is still regarded as a seminal, groundbreaking poet.

    17. James says:

      William Blake was and is a prophet We can all still learn from his wonderfully strange works.

    18. Gabriel Iqbal says:

      As a person is, so they see As the eye is formed, such are its powers William Blake What do you want to know

    19. Mandy says:

      I enjoyed this collection Bought back memories of studying this poet in school.

    20. Dianna Caley says:

      Kindle will not let me finish without review

    21. Emmanuel says:

      William Blame liked to write poetry about our Lord, flowers and roses, sheeps and tygers, trees and nature, lost children, and all things bland and boring The whole book gave off the impression of a bored, rich dandy in his country estate writing about all the times he rolled down grassy hillocks and gambolled with spring lambs and peahens There are no clever turns of phrase in his poetry or challenging ideas, just a lot of rhymes combining the first two words that sound the same as each other I [...]

    22. Grace says:

      I know this rating must reveal something quite terrible about me Alas, I tried to like this book of poems but failed.In 2010 I heard a preacher quote Blake and decided to get to know this poet and his craft Well, this many years later I have finally finished the small volume I bought way back then It was a hard journey with many starts and long pauses For all the effort I did not feel greatly rewarded In fact, I must say that I felt like the only one in the room who wasn t getting it I even vent [...]

    23. Sarah says:

      I don t really want to finish thisI wanted to read a small poetry book for each major poet this year, and Blake is a considered a big one , but I m just not into it A lot of the poems are religious in nature not into religious poetry and I think I ve read enough of Blake I was a bit disappointed because I always liked Auguries of Innocence and, To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour is one of my favorite line [...]

    24. Miles Smith says:

      This is a short collection that features Blake s Songs of Innocence and of Experience The poems are saturated with Christian imagery and surprisingly with considerable sacramental imagery as well Blake was a dissenter who eventually rejected all organized religion although he maintained a reverential attitude toward the Christian Bible This is a short collection and not at all complete Some of Blake s nineteenth century works are perceived to outshine the poems collected here, but Songs of Innoc [...]

    25. Kate says:

      Love love love his paintingsriously, he s one of my favorites But, I cannot stand this.I ve said before that I suck at understanding poetry, so I m not the best critic While I understood all of this, I didn t think it was particularly good It s very simple in construction and theme, and generally too biblical for my liking I m sure other people probably love it though, so give it a chance if you feel so inclined

    26. Wendell Nealon says:

      Blake is FineBlake has a wondrous ability to look satirically at some objects in his writing While steadfastly and straightforward writing devout religious conjuring His abilities in broaching many controversial subjects with poise and grace are simply amazing.Reading Blake s poetic genius is exposed in nearly every line of this book His caring and compelling rhymes are a gift from years gone by.

    27. Peter says:

      I have to confess that Blake s language did not talk to me Even reading it aloud did not change this On the other hand I liked his anger about social grievances as expressed in the poems Holy Thursday, The Little Girl Lost, The Chimney Sweeper My favourite quote For where er the sun does shine,And where er the rain does fall,Babes should never hunger there,Nor poverty the mind appall.

    28. John Yelverton says:

      This is a wonderful collection of brilliant and beautiful poetry by one of the foremost English poets What was most enjoyable for me personally was William Blake s poetry concerning his faith and Christianity.

    29. Jo (A rather Bookish Geek) says:

      If I am completely honest here, I did not enjoy this as much as I thought I would There were a few I liked, The Tyger being my favourite I just felt the poem s were all a bit samey, and unfortunately they mostly seemed to focus on the subject of religion.
