Book Description

24 Aug 2000 Wordsworth Poetry Library

This Wordsworth Edition includes an exclusive Introduction, Notes and Bibliography by Dr Bruce Woodcock, Senior Lecturer in English, University of Hull.

William Blake was an engraver, painter and visionary mystic as well as one of the most revolutionary of the Romantic poets. His writing attracted the astonished admiration of authors as diverse as Wordsworth, Ruskin, W.B.Yeats, and more recently beat poet Allen Ginsberg and the ‘flower power’ generation. He is one of England's most original artists whose works aim to liberate imaginative energies and subvert ‘the mind-forged manacles’ of restriction.

This volume contains many of his writings, including: ‘Songs of Innocence’, ‘Songs of Experience’, ‘The Marriage of Heaven and Hell’, and a generous selection from the Prophetic Books including ‘Milton’ and ‘Jerusalem’.

Perfect little collection of Mr. Blake's poems. I gave it to my uncle and he wasn't very talkative the rest of the evening. He really enjoyed the book.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great little collection. Its small enough to pop into my handbag. This is not a complete collection but it would make a good starter if you weren't sure about you level of interest in Blake's work or wanted a small collection to interest a newbie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal 19 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ideal collection of Blake's greatest hits. Extensive but just slim enough to go in a coat pocket - Blake is a good companion when out walking, I find. Inspiring stuff.
