With its combination of poetic brilliance and exquisite art, the Poetry for Young People series has won the admiration of critics, educators, children, and parents. Every breathtaking volume in this acclaimed, bestselling collection features magnificent full-color illustrations that enhance each verse, and a renowned scholar's guidance to help children understand and love poetry. There's an introduction to each poem, full annotations that define unfamiliar vocabulary, and fascinating biographical information. The star of this superb new entry in the series is 18th century artist and poet William Blake, who wrote his mystical, spirit-filled verses for children and adults alike. Best known for his masterpieces "Songs of Innocence" and "Songs of Experience"--both excerpted here--he speaks of love, hate, anguish, relief and above all, mercy and the divine image that comforts us. Blake often uses simple, lovely language that young readers can appreciate, as well as animal metaphors; his poems sometimes even come in pairs, with the same subjects seen from different points of view. Professor John Maynard ( Poetry for Young People: Alfred Lord Tennyson ) provides the excellent biography and notes. Artist Alessandra Cimatoribus contributes richly colored and magically rendered paintings that fully capture the gentleness of "The Lamb," the sparkling deep blue sky and angels of "Night," and "The Tyger," eyes glistening and sharp teeth bared--burning bright.

display_description William Blake's highly personal messages of humanity and social conscience are as relevant today as in 18th-century London. Although Blake's works were ignored or dismissed until long after his death, their directness and unsentimental simplicity will strike a chord with many today.
