- William Blake focused on biblical images in the majority of his poetry and prose. Much of his well-known work comes from the two compilations Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience. The poems in these compilations reflect Blake’s metamorphosis in thought as he grew from innocent to experienced.
- Today, few of us take Blake’s madness seriously, either because we don’t believe in it or because it no longer matters. Blake’s fundamental concepts speak mainly about the human condition and emotion; and within the realms of this paper, I would like to persuade my readers that William Blake uses simple language and metaphors to show the two contrary states of the human soul – innocence and experience.
- William Blake wrote during the Romantic period which was a span between 1785 – 1830. Other great writers during this time were Mary Wollstonecraft, Coleridge, Wordsworth, and others. Some said that the Romantic period was the fairy tale way of writing through symbolism and allegory and also an age for individualism.
- William Blake’s works include many of which relate to the role and interest of many figures of children and caretakers who appear in Songs of Innocence and Experience. The poems I will be discussing in this thesis are, from the Songs of Innocence: “The Little Girl Lost,” “The Little Girl Found” and “The Chimney Sweeper.
- Living in a world without modern technology and media. William Blake (1757 – 1827) used his poetry as a powerful instrument for social comment. This is particularly evident in Laughing Song and London taken from The Portable Blake. The two poems present conflicting views of creation and mankind.
- To some people William Blake is just an ordinary man. To others, Blake is an English poet, painter, and engraver. Blake was born on November 28, 1757, in London, where he spent most of his life.

- Faulkner grew up in Mississippi in the beginning of the twentieth century ( William Faulkner 699). He was the son to Murray C. and Maud Butler Faulkner (Hoffman 13). Growing up in the South in the early 1900 s meant being exposed to harsh racism. He watched the blacks endure unbelievable amounts of cruelty and was amazed at how the blacks conducted themselves with such dignity.
- In all five of William Blake s poems there is a clear connection between the outward subjects and the deeper truths they express. The Tiger and The Lamb are actually about a wild and a tame animal, but are really about God’s power in creation or the power of the natural world and the nature of God as shown in Jesus.
- The Romantic Period’s affinity towards childhood is epitomized in the poetry of Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Experience. “Little Lamb who made thee/ Dost thou know who made thee (Blake 1- ).” The Lamb’s introductory lines set the style for what follows: an innocent poem about a amiable lamb and it’s creator.
- The poetry of William Blake is renowned for its critique of society and injustice as well as expressing strong religious influences. Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience were written concerning the destiny of the human spirit and the differences between how children and adults view and understand the world.

Different directors make the two films. The two films are based on the same story but the differences occur in the way each director has interpreted the text.
- William Blake was a critic of his own time and was a prophet of times to come (Mooney William Blake?s Relevance to the Modern World 3). Blake, who lived in the latter half of the eighteenth century and the early part of the nineteenth, was a profoundly stirring poet who was, in large part, responsible for bringing about the Romantic movement in poetry; was able to achieve ?remarkable results with the simplest means?; and was one of several of the time who restored ?rich musicality to the language? (Appelbaum English Romantic Poetry: An Anthology 5).
- The small, naive child is talking to a “meek” (15) and “mild” (15) lamb. The lamb signifies the peace and tranquility of the world created by God. The child asks the lamb “Dost thou know who made thee?” ( ), but does not give the lamb a chance to answer.
- The sonnet ?London, 1802? written by William Wordsworth, and ?The Lamb? written by William Blake both contain elements of Romanticism. Both of the poems clearly follow a structure similar to Abrams? Romantic formula, which is composed of a realistic setting, visionary experience, and return to a setting with insight.

- “Barn Burning ” describes the development of Colonel Sartoris Snopes (Sarty) with his coming to manhood and the concomitant rejection of his father (Mr Snopes).

- 18th century London, it seems, was not a city of beauty or mirth; that is, at least, for the poets William Blake and Jonathan Swift. Blake’s “London” and Swift’s “A Description of a City Shower” are both poems in which the pervading theme is one of a dark, miserable city.
