Songs of Innocence and of Experience: A Level Comprehensive Guide with Recordings

Set text for: AQA B A Level

Blake’s political leanings are deceptively complex: though he is inescapably treated as part of the Enlightenment and its liberal burgeoning, his social commentary lies outside the traditional realms of satire, and his conceptions of rebellion and power dynamics are inextricably bound with his views on religion. Get to grips with these intricacies with thorough notes, interspersed with thoughtful activities for students to expand their knowledge of the collection, encourage comparisons within it and support creative independent analysis of each poem.
