    William Blake and its doctrine of poetic genius and engravings is a little artificial. If there is poetic capacity, there it is.

    excellent

    The Catterpillar on the Leaf
    Repeats to thee thy Mother's grief.
    Kill not the Moth nor Butterfly,
    For the Last Judgement draweth nigh.

    If you observe an infinitesimal detail, you would harvest the whole picture. Nowadays people need to stop and observe the truth instead of indulging themselves into confusion.

    A poem of immense craft and structure. It's complexity ensures, I will have to read it many many times to gleam some profound understanding. On a superficial level it carries a powerful, simple, insightful message.

    Forgive me for time is not understood, all my comments, in accordance to my demand, live in a moment that never arrives. It is not pride, is the great divide. Blake is great. First comment.

    We should read it and feel the truth of Blake's empathy for all beings. AM

    The introduction of this poem has been ringing in my memory since the first time I read it in elementary school. This is a great introduction to a poem which springs alive by virtue of its imagery

    this man does not speak joyfully but a passion full of woe with of how we all treat animals a like and how the innocent become committed to coursing sin while also allowing relief with one simple line towards the end some of misery are born this almost relinquishes responsibility

    Introduction was one of the greatest i have ever read but i was lost as i went down. It has one of the best symbolic language and hard to understand what is going on. It's too long for me.
