One of the great English Romantic poets, William Blake (1757 - 1827) was an artist, poet, mystic and visionary. His work ranges from the deceptively simple and lyrical Songs of Innocence and their counterpoint Songs Of Experience - which juxtapose poems such as "The Lamb' and 'The Tyger', 'The Blossom' and 'The Sick Rose' - to highly elaborate, apocalyptic works, such as The Four Zoas, Milton and Jerusalem. Throughout his life Blake drew on a rich heritage of philosophy, religion and myth, to create poetic worlds illuminated by his spiritual and revolutionary beliefs that have fascinated, intrigued and enchanted readers for generations.Edited by Alicia Ostriker, this definitive edition contains all of Blake's poems, including those unpublished in his lifetime, with the remaining fragments of his work and his notes upon The Four Zoas . Full notes are also provided to explain the context and complexities of the poetry.
