Format: Hardcover
Blake is both a great mystic and a great poet. If you enjoy either poetry or mysticism or both you will like his poems. He tends to work on a large scale. For example all of the poems in Songs of Innocence fit a scheme and have a counterpart in Songs of Experience. I like this edition because it is very handsome with nice binding, and includes the major works of Blake. Now all you need is a book of his engravings and paintings.

This work contains 'The Songs of Innocence' 'The Songs of Experience' a selection from Blake's manuscripts, and from the longer Prophetic Books.

For the complicated Blake so loved by Northrop Frye and other literary critics this small edition of his work will of course, not do. But for the common reader, the one who loves the memorable short lines, the striking rhymes this edition is fine.

Great Blake seems so simple and makes myths in short lines and stanzas.

This is a very good collection for those who love the most popular Blake of all.

Fantastic book! Has all that is needed as a jump start into the world of William Blake's visions of atavism.

As in any book of poems, some connect with you, some don't. Someone told me that Blake was the Timothy Leary or his day.

Not since Augustine, Constantine, or Aquinnas, and not since his time, has anyone Orthodox, but revelatory, so gotten at the heart of Christian ethics with a diction and accompanying, extrapolating additional theological pantheon, setting the record straight on the true nature of the centrality of creation and the Fall of Satan, then mankind -- this postlapsarian world of ours of sin and death -- as has William Blake near and more than two centuries ago. He is popular again today because of minority assuagement of our religious oligarchy, as one is apt to see it, and popular also, having been a prolific and demandingly critical artist and engraver, as being recognized as the progenitor of the graphic novel (verse epic, that is). Last, speaking of his language and imagination, editorial authorities stand him alongside everyone from Dante to Shakespeare and on. To put it in layman's terms, he has a bombastically colorful, creative style that is an engrossing headtrip... Tom Lee...
