William Blake artist and poet of the late 18th and early 19th centuries lived in a time when there were no child labor or abuse laws in London William Blake wrote his poems on Chimneysweepers or in other terms child slaves who were forced up chimneys to clean As an artist William Blake illustrated every one of his poem covers with dramatic detail William Blakes two poems Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience are both spectacular poems due to their symbolism creativity and the emotional impact that they have on their readers Blakes use of symbolism in both of his poems is astounding Blakes use of symbolism is visibly shown in all of his literature for an instance in the phrases wash in a river and shine in the sun what do you suppose these phrases really signify in Blakes mind Well since Blake is a religious freak in my state of mind I would say that these two phrases could represent anything Their real meaning is that the boy was baptized or washed in a river and was shining in Gods glory following the baptism or shining in the sun Did you gain that meaning from the two phrases In both poems all of Blakes symbolism can be clearly shown through his unique style of writing While reading each of Blakes poems you can clearly after reading them see another story behind each phrase It is practically like a magic trick It is like those words that are considered brainteasers I must deem Blake was a genius He must have had an outstanding education to think of one story and have one meaning for what you are reading but hide another story which is within the story itself using symbolism Blakes creativity level in each of his poems is spectacular because it makes his poems seem incredibly appealing and unique One instance of his creative mind is he provides shocking details
