Having watched the BBC film on”The Children Who Built Victorian Britain” contextualize two Blake poems. Discuss Blake’s literary imagery(metaphor and metonymy) and how it delivers a social and political message about “childhood”. What traditional religious imagery informs Blake’s system of imagery and how would this impact childhood, in your opinion?Please post one comment on another student’s blog.
