William Blake (1757-1827) was a poet of striking originality, whose poetic world of myth and mysticism continues to fascinate.

Sustained by his belief in the artistic imagination, he drafted poetry, prose visions, and epigrams, and manufactured beautiful illustrated volumes of his lyrics and verse narratives.

The editor of this work Stephan Gill traces in his introduction the development of Wordsworth as a poet. The Anthology contains the work of Wordsworth from the beginning and includes the major masterpieces. Wordsworth was the great uniter of the simple and sublime in poetry, who made of the language of everyday a great philosophical poem of beauty
This is of course one of many editions of his works, but it provides the bonus of a most capable introduction and survey of the work as a whole.

The prophetic Blake of Zoas, Jerusalem , and the other long -poems has always escaped me.

The Blake of the short memorable lyrics , of the 'Songs of Innocence and Experience' reverberates in my mind.

The Blake of proverb always strikes a strong note.

All the radical ideology ,and the fervor of an upturner of worlds , the solitary angry social critic too has not meant that much to me.

But 'Little Lamb who made thee/Dost thou know who made thee?/

and Tyger/Tyger/ Burning bright in the forest of the night/ these fascinate as only real poetry does.

Little Lamb who made thee? Dost thou know who made thee?
