William Blake was one of the finest craftsmen of his time, a poet whose work will never be forgotten. He was an independent and rebellious thinker, who abhorred pretension and falsity in others. His Songs of Innocence
are products of this innocent imagination untainted by worldliness, while the Songs of Experience
resulted from his feelings of indignation and pity for the suffering of mankind.
The Songs of Innocence and of Experience, containing some of Blake's finest and best-loved poems, are present here in the form which satisfied the high expectations of his poetic aspirations. The forty-five poems which Blake originally etched by hand are faithfully reproduced here with the same care and attention to detail Blake himself was so famous for.
