Songs of Innocence and Experience: Shewing the Two Contrary States of the Human Soul, 1789-1794 (Oxford ...
Oxford University Press, USA
The Oxford Paperbacks edition is superb
There are larger, more luxurious graphical editions of Blake's two most popular works but the Oxford SONGS OF INNOCENCE AND OF EXPERIENCE is perhaps the most affordable and convenient. After a short introductory piece which makes the reader expect a pastoral mood, SONGS OF INNOCENCE opens with "The Shepherd", and the reader is immediately acquainted with Blake's style: deceptively simple, but ...
Poems of William Blake
Public Domain Books, 2009
poems and pages differ from the 2006 version
Auguries of Innocence "to see the world in a grain of sand" is missing in the edition which I could see online - I bought it as a gift and my friend told me that the pages numbers do not match the description and the index of first lines - which puts the poem on a page that is not there. There are fewer pages than described
English Romantic Poetry: An Anthology (Dover Thrift Editions)
Priceless Poetry at a Budget Price
I have had this inexpensive Dover Thrift Edition anthology of English romantic poetry for many years. I keep it on a readily accessible shelf in my office and browse in it for inspiration. It is always a pleasure during a harried and wearying day simply to hold this little volume in my hands. The book consists of a generous selection of 123 poems from six English romantic poets: William ...
Prentice Hall Science Explorer Astronomy
Jay M. Pasachoff
Shipper delivered as advertised. Publisher does a nice job of compiling information and using on-line activities, however I would skip Chapter 2 on Exploring Space until end of book/lesson plan as it only serves to distract the students from the subject.
The Complete Poetry & Prose of William Blake
It has it all
It has all his writings: letters, anotations scribbled in the margins of other people's books, everything. Only downside: it doesn't show his illuminated printing.
The Marriage of Heaven and Hell: A Facsimile in Full Color
Easy to Read
The illuminations accompanying Blake's poetry should be considered necessary to the reading of his poems. The illuminations are beautiful, descriptive, obviously terribly time consuming and should not be counted as something separate from the words. That said, sometimes it is difficult to read the poems on the illuminations, as they were meant to be read. This book provides the complete ...
Songs of Innocence and Experience
Public Domain Books, 1999
Perhaps Blake's Greatest Achievement
William Blake is one of the most original and influential English poets - so eccentric and ground-breaking that even his biggest fans considered him insane long after his death. The poems in Songs of Innocence & Experience are his most popular and lasting achievement, essential for anyone even remotely interested in poetry and a good place for those new to Blake and poetry generally to start. ...

The Complete Graphics of Blake are a Fabulous Find on Amazon.com!
Peter Ackroyd's biography, Blake, renewed my interest in Blake's graphic work. This collection of Blake's plates turns out to be wonderfully exciting, complete and visually arresting. I am extremely excited by it. The opportunity to read his work as written, painted or etched in his own hand is wonderful. Moreover, I find that the same texts that soon proved "dry" when viewed as text alone now ...

Blake E. Peterson

This was a wonderful book and was everything I needed for the math classes I'm taking. It's really helpful for Elementary School Teachers.

Blake's Poetry and Designs (Norton Critical Editions)
W. W. Norton & Company
Very solid edition of Blake's works
William Blake is one of those soaring pioneers of the human imagination whose visions and their scope make you feel rather humble at times. His works are quite diverse and his output during his life very considerable. Blake's longer poems, such as 'Jerusalem' or the 'Four Zoas', would easily make large books of their own in any edition of his works. This Norton's edition contains selections ...
The Marriage of Heaven and Hell
Oxford University Press, USA, 1867
The Bible is not the definitive authority on quality.
I fail to see how whether or not this book is contradictory to the bible is any indictation of whether it is good or not.
The Selected Poems of William Blake (Wordsworth Poetry Library)
Wordsworth Editions Ltd
The Selected Poems of William Blake
This is not "new" reading for me, but my previous copy is worn to shreds. My only issue with this particular volume is that there are no pictures of Blake's amazing artwork. Perhaps when I am a little more flush I'll get the book that does have it.
Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience (Dover Thrift Editions)
The Human Abstract in Mystical Form
William Blake is one of the giants of poetry. He is often overlooked because of the obliqueness of many of his poems. But this affordable (read: cheap) collection of poems is well worth the price of admission. Most of Blakes most famous and well loved poems are included in this volume. Most of us had to read at least a couple of these poems in school. The Tyger still stands as one of the ...
The Portable William Blake
The introduction alone is worth the price of admission
The best of William Blake (and then some!), taken off the shelf, dusted off and propped up for the rest of eternity to consider. From the aphorisms of "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell" (required reading) to the later prophetic books, it's Blake in all of his...Blakeness. And let's give a hand to Kazin for his fantastic Introduction to one of the heavy-hitters of the Western tradition.
William Blake's Divine Comedy Illustrations: 102 Full-Color Plates
A Good Book if You Like Blake's Art
I was a copy of Dante's Divine Comedy as a birthday present for a friend who mentioned they would like to have one with the William Blake illustrations. It's hard to the actual Divine Comedy with these illustrations, but then I stumbled upon this. It's nice because you have all of the illustrations (even ones unfinished or not in the original edition of the book with his illustrations). Since my ...
The Complete Poems
Penguin Publishing, 2004
Unparalleled visionary power
Though I firmly support the general consensus that Shakespeare is our greatest poet--the more one reads, the more this becomes apparent--I am equally firm in stating that there has been no greater visionary poet than Blake, not even Milton. William Blake lived and wrote almost entirely ignored during his time, regarded, if at all, as an eccentric painter. This speaks not to the quality of his ...
Great Sonnets (Dover Thrift Editions)
, William Blake, ...
Great intro and survey of sonnets
I needed a little reference with sonnet examples. This fit the bill, and had some savory treats as well. I am a bit time-greedy with my poetry reading, and a sonnet is a fantastic way to get some of the best Shakespeare, Shelley, Longfellow, Hardy, Frost, etc. distilled down to a minute, even reading slowly. It's great to flick open to a page and see some masterful language on a time ...
Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience
A very high-quality hardback edition, with thick paper, sewn binding, and fine, full-size reproductions of Blake's illustrations from the excellent Cambridge originals. Originals vary a good deal; compare these with the muddy ones used in the Oxford edition. Each illustration faces the associated poem, the only sensible layout, but something the Oxford edition does not do, for some reason. The ...
