Songs of Innocence and Experience by William Blake

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Written in the deceptively simple style associated with children's verse, Songs of Innocence and of Experience is a collection of short lyric poems accompanied by Blake's original illustrations. The two sections, written over an interval of at least four years, juxtapose “the two contrary states of the human soul,” as the combined text's subtitle states. “The Tyger,” an individual verse from Songs of Experience, is one of the most widely recognised poems in the English language.

Beautiful colour illustrations of Blake's verses on the right hand pages and the standard text on the left.

Introduction by Richard Holmes.

1997 Folio Society, 5th Edition.

Dark Red Cloth cover with Gilt lettering & Illustration to front.

CONDITION: Almost as new. Some small scuffs to folio slipcase but no marks, notations or inscriptions on book. Has been well protected.
