My thesis is done, and now I’m studying for the oral exam on the English literary canon.  I have been told that I should know about William Blake.  So, despite my efforts to avoid the Romantics, I am now reading and making erudite notes on Wordsworth and Blake, especially Blake’s Songs of Innocence & of Experience.  Here are some of the enigmatic & wonderful pages of this book:

Blake_Songs of Innocence & of Experience
Blake_The Sick Rose  Blake_The Clod and the Pebble

Blake_A Poison Tree  Blake_The Fly

Oh they’re so small!  Oh well.
