5.0 out of 5 stars Good Collection, Great Poet 10 April 2009
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent collection of poems from a great poet and definitely my favourite. It includes all the work you would expect in an anthology from Blake such as `Songs of Innocence', `Songs of Experience', `The Marriage of Heaven and Hell' and `Jerusalem'.

If you've never read Blake then I suggest you do as he is one of the greatest poets that ever lived. He is insightful, a visionary, has exceptional poetic skill and he stands out almost as an `outsider' from other poets of his generation. His originality was profound and his influence is seen right through to the present day and was enormously significant in the 1960s through music such as The Doors.

4.0 out of 5 stars More notes please 15 July 2007
By Shalom Freedman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Blake's greatness is not in question, nor is his difficulty. Northrop Frye said that Blake is of the great English poets the one for whom the largest share of his work remains largely unread and unknown. An explanation for that is that Blake's longer poems, his prophetic works are extremely difficult to understand. Thus any presentation of his work should have copious notes, even if that presentation centers on that smaller lyric poetry for which Blake is best known to the world. This present edition contains an introduction to Blake's work which is far too short to really give an overall sense of his life and development.
Nonetheless this edition contains much of the anthologized Blake, as well as selections from longer works like 'Milton' and 'Jerusalem'.
A reader can thus find here the best of Blake. But if the reader needs to go beyond the understanding he can attain by his own reading then this work must be supplemented by others.
