- Blake Poetry - 841 words
Blake Poetry Verily I say unto you, Whoseover shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. [S Luke, 18 (17)] The words are those of Jesus, who was neither unaware of reality, nor indifferent to suffering. The childlike innocence referred to above is a state of purity and not of ignorance. Such is the vision of Blake in his childlike Songs of Innocence. It would be foolish to suppose that the author of ^Holy Thursday^ and ^The Chimney Sweeper^ in Songs of Innocence was insensible to the contemporary social conditions of orphans or young sweeps, and that therefore the poems of the same names in Songs of Experience are somehow apologies or retractions o ...

- Children In Blakes Poetry - 1,160 words
Children In Blake's Poetry Children in Blake's Poetry The use of children is a prominent theme in a number of William Blake's poems. It is apparent in reading such poems as, "The Lamb," "The Little Black Boy," and "The Chimney Sweeper," that Blake sees the world through the eyes of a child and embraces the innocence of the young. Blake's poem "The Lamb," from Songs of Innocence really illustrates the innocence and purity of a young child. The persona in the poem is of a young child. The child questions the lamb as to where he came from and asks, "Little Lamb who made thee? / Dost thou know who made thee?" (9,10) The child is expecting the Lamb to answer him but it is obvious to the reader th ...

- God Speaks Through The Mouths Of Poets - 1,020 words
God Speaks Through The Mouths Of Poets Every poem has an element of God in it's words. Just as God spoke through the writings of Peter or Matthew, elements of His word are in the beautiful themes in poetry. In this essay, I will compare the poems of William Blake and William Wordsworth with the written Word of God, in five poems: The Lamb, The Chimney Sweeper, The Tyger, My Heart Leaps Up, and London 1802.

Just as God asks us, Blake questions our understanding of our creator. If we are seen as the lambs of ...

- The Human Abstract - 1,580 words
The Human Abstract Annotated Bibliography: The Human Abstract The Human Abstract has not received much critical attention on its own. Of the critical interpretations that do exist, many approach the poem by examining its various manifestations in Blake's manuscripts, reading it against A Divine Image, a poem w hich was never finally published by Blake, or comparing it to its Innocence counterpart, The Divine Image. Most critics seem to agree that The Human Abstract represents a philosophical turning point in The Songs of Innocence and of Expe rience, and in Blake's work as a whole. In 1924, Joseph H. Wicksteed observes that this difficult poem, originally called 'The human Image, represents ...

- William Blake - 1,375 words
William Blake William Blake (1757-1827) William Blake wrote during the Romantic period which was a span between 1785 - 1830. Other great writers during this time were Mary Wollstonecraft, Coleridge, Wordsworth, and others. Some said that the Romantic period was the fairy tale way of writing through symbolism and allegory and also an age for individualism. A crucial point by Romantic theorist referred to the mind, emotions, and imagination of the poet (Abrams, et al 5). In comparison to Blakes Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience Northrop Frys distinction between the imagined states of innocence and experience is stated as thus: world of innocence: unfallen world/ unified self/ integrat ...
