(I’m using this listing to review Anne Malcolmson’s William Blake: An Introduction, since no listing for the book exists on Goodreads. You can find it on Amazon here:

A perfect little introduction to Blake, Malcolmson’s biographical note and comments on the poems are well done and unobtrusive. Not at all academic, she gets at Blake’s real strangeness as well as his appealing, compassionate humanity. A dozen or so color plates are included. The book is ou

"Não revele aos amigos os seus segredos, porque você não sabe se algum se tornará seu inimigo. Não cause ao seu inimigo todo o mal que lhe possa fazer, porque você não sabe se ele se tornará um dia seu amigo".

Ah Sun-flower! weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the Sun:
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the travellers journey is done.

Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow:
Arise from their graves and aspire,
Where my Sun-flower wishes to go.

взялась читати,бо через твір спіткаєшся об аллюзію на блейка.може,забагато очікувала,може,надто його зпопсували і,читай я раніше,може,мене б теж вивернуло_перевернуло, - зараз - просто темна,лячна,хороша така поезія.дуже дощова,до слова

"But most, through midnight streets I hear
How the youthful harlot's curse
Blasts the new-born infant's tear,
And blights with plagues the marriage hearse."

William Blake is probs my favourite poet, or is at least in the top ten.

To be honest this was likely to stay on my currently reading status for an age as I never tire of Blake's prose and consistently return yo it,dipping in and out of various bits as the mood takes

I positively adore William Blake. Wish I could turn a phrase as beautifully as he can. But I can't. {sigh}.

William Blake was an English poet, painter, and printmaker. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake's work is today considered seminal and significant in the history of both poetry and the visual arts.

Blake's prophetic poetry has been said to form "what is in proportion to its merits the least read body of poetry in the language". His visual artistry has led one modern critic to proclaim h
