Songs of Innocence and of Experience Book Description :

Songs of Innocence and of Experience is an collection of poems by William Blake. It appeared in two phases. A few first copies were printed and illuminated by William Blake himself in 1789; five years later he bound these poems with a set of new poems in a volume titled Songs of Innocence and of Experience Shewing the Two Contrary States of the Human Soul. William Blake was also a painter before the songs of innocence and experience and made paintings such as Oberon, Titania, and Puck dancing with fairies. "Innocence" and "Experience" are definitions of consciousness that rethink Milton's existential-mythic states of "Paradise" and "Fall". Often, interpretations of this collection centre around a mythical dualism, where "Innocence" represents the "unfallen world" and "Experience" represents the "fallen world". Blake categorizes our modes of perception that tend to coordinate with a chronology that would become standard in Romanticism: childhood is a state of protected innocence rather than original sin, but not immune to the fallen world and its institutions. This world sometimes impinges on childhood itself, and in any event becomes known through "experience", a state of being marked by the loss of childhood vitality, by fear and inhibition, by social and political corruption, and by the manifold oppression of Church, State, and the ruling classes. The volume's "Contrary States" are sometimes signalled by patently repeated or contrasted titles: in Innocence, Infant Joy, in Experience, Infant Sorrow; in Innocence, The Lamb, in Experience, The Fly and The Tyger. The stark simplicity of poems such as The Chimney Sweeper and The Little Black Boy display Blake's acute sensibility to the realities of poverty and exploitation that accompanied the "Dark Satanic Mills" of the Industrial Revolution.

Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience by William Blake Book Description :

William Blake was born in 1757 in London. He spent his childhood in Dublin and then moved to Switzerland. Initially unappreciated and considered insane, William Blake is now known as one of the most inspiring and influential English artists of all times. Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience were originally produced as engraved and illuminated books, colored by the author himself. After publishing Songs of Innocence, William Blake wrote a new set of songs (Songs of Experience), which in a harsh but satirical way responded to those collected in his first work. Songs of innocence and experience contrast the innocent and idyllic childhood existence with the repression and corruption of an adult environment. In his work, Blake shares his individual political and spiritual believes. He touches on difficult topics such as poverty, children abuse and repressive nature of church and skillfully paints a portrait of a complex political and social landscape of his era.
