Top customer reviews
I recently bought the a new copy of the Dover Thrift Edition of William Blake's Songs Of Innocence & Songs Of Experience. And it is everything you would expect from a Dover Thrift Edition; the printing and binding are fine. There is a Contents page as well as an Alphabetical List of First Lines and Alphabetical List of Titles.
1. It contains the Poems
2. the poems are the work of genius
3, it is a cheap edition
Less Good Stuff
1. unlike the "look inside" preview the illustrations are not in colour
2. The spacing of the poems is bizarre "the Fly" has one line at the bottom of page 32, the the majority of the poem is on page 33, interrupted by a black and white illustration and two lines on page 34.
nothing on spine so difficult to pick out on a bookshelf
