Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book which covers all aspects of Blakes poetry including form, structure, language and context. Marsh writes the book in an easy to understand but distinguished way which helps when studying Blake. The book is particularly focused on The Songs of Innocence and Experience and Marsh's analysis of the poems is superb! A must have for any A-Level (particulary A2 Level) As a student myself studying Blake, this book became my bible!

Format: Paperback
ok i think the good thing about this book is it is very detailed and is very discriptive about the formation and rhyme etc. in Blake's poetry. BUT if you are not already familiar with the basics of his poetry it does throw you in the deep end quite a bit. However, if you are studying Blake you will probably greatly improve your chances of those higher grades...the choice is yours....

this book is amazing -its exactly what you need from analysis of the siongs of innocence and experience to the prophetic books, as well as critique, a biography and social context.

Format: Paperback
I bought the book having been struggling with my A Level English Literature Blake module. The book was a great help and helped me score an A. The guide is very coherent, with analysis by theme of each poem. Key to A level literature, Marsh makes use of the stylistic and linguistic devices of Blake and reverts meaning to context. My teacher even sent a letter home to my parents after doing extremely well in a Blake presentation (with thanks to the author of course!).

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Captain Pugwash on 17 May 2009
Format: Paperback
With Blake's Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience being part of the AQA and OCR A2 syllabus', this text is aimed squarely at students struggling to understand his (often dense and occasionally nebulous) poetry. It guides you through the poems offering context and interpretation; invaluable for A level Literature students.
