Songs of Innocence and Experience [audio]

This is an audiobook recording of Songs of Innocence and Experience, by William Blake. It is a volume of poetry which is the embodiment of Blake’s belief that innocence and experience were “the two contrary states of the human soul,” and that true innocence was impossible without experience. Songs of Innocence contains poems either written from the perspective of children or written about them. Many of the poems appearing in Songs of Innocence have a counterpart in Songs of Experience, with quite a different perspective of the world. Blake believed that children should indeed become experienced but through their own discoveries, which is reflected in a number of these poems.
