The Pastoral Poems of William Blake

Updated: Jan 22, 2020



On this episode I cover three very short poems by William Blake in his Songs of Innocence and Experience:

1) The Shepherd 2) The Lamb 3) Spring

These are the pastoral poems in this book of poetry. You'll learn the difference between a pastoral poem and a georgic poem and why that is important. Also, we'll explore the deeper themes recurring throughout this work by Blake.
