William Blake is England's undiscovered great poet. While other romantic
poets such as Keats and Byron achieved world fame, William Blake remained
relatively unknown during his lifetime. Today, he is recognized as one of the
great six: the English Romantic poets of the 18th Century, Coleridge, Keats,
Byron, Shelly, and Wordsworth.
Blake's religious poems are especially famous, if not the best representatives
of his work. This collection of audio poems by William Blake offers his two most
famous Christian poems, as well as his hate poem, The Poison Tree, and
his sad love poems, Love's Secret and The Garden of Love.
The audio poems collection then closes with a final religious poem of greater
sophistication, also considered a death poem, though one with a blissful look at
Of William Blake's numerous Christian poems
two are most famous: This audio poem, The Tyger, and The Lamb.
Each of these Christian poems displays a corollary but opposite view of God. In
this audio poem God's mighty side is depicted, His wrath and His power. Thus
Blake compares God to a tiger, just as the second famous poem compares Him to a
lamb. The tiger burns brightly, the metaphors applied to him blaze with majesty
and awe. And such is the side of God this William Blake poem explores.
Perhaps one of the most famous Christian poems
ever written, The Lamb by William Blake speaks of Christ in a gentle
light. Here the classic poet celebrates the joys of Creation symbolized in the
beauty and perfection of a soft lamb; when the lamb, himself, is a symbol of
Christ. This audio poem is simple and charming in its simplicity. Best listened
to together with The Tyger, this audio poem reveals Blake's mixed view
This haunting audio poem by William Blake
captures the grief and despair of lost love. Whether through death or parting,
the hollow loss left behind after love departs is always the same--a garden
turned into a graveyard. Likening despair to a cemetery, with gravestones in
place of smiles and warmth, this audio poem is haunting and beautiful.
Also known by its first line, Never Seek
to Tell Thy Love, this short love
poem by William Blake speaks of
of love. It warns against confessing the secret's of the heart, lest that
angelic emotion we call love should flutter away with the wind. So if you have
been told that you lack romantic sensitivity, that you cannot speak your
heart--answer with this short love poem.
Hate poems may
be bitter or cruel, but this hate poem from
the famous classic English Romantic poet, William Blake, is filled with wisdom.
For it speaks of the essence of hate, how it grows from anger that cannot be
dispelled. When friends fight, the anger fades. But foes nourish and grow their
hate, like a tree in an orchard. And thus grows the metaphor of this chilling
audio poem about a poison tree.
This classic death poem from the famous
English Romantic poet, William Blake, speaks not of the dark side of death, but
of the hope of resurrection and peace everlasting. This serene audio poem gives
hope to anyone who believes in the hereafter, speaking with a simple, natural
metaphor as the poet looks at a sunflower and wonders at the passing of time.
The classic poet, William Blake, is famed for his religious poems, and this one
speaks with a heart full of belief in divine providence.
Ah! Sunflower, by William Blake
