        >all this Blake overrating
        He was the worst wheat/chaff ratio of any major English poet. None of his longer poems succeeds. At his most sentimental he is more sappy than Wordsworth dared.
        The notion of him as this mad mystic visionary far exceeds the reality

        Wordsworth was literally poet laureate under Queen Victoria

          He was also born in 1770. All the Romantics were born in the 1700s, not in Victorian times.

          The intense feeling of a genuine schizo, which he very obviously was, is not at all the same thing as Wordsworth's sentimentalism. And what exactly is your definition of "success" here?

            This is what I mean. You are defending trite poetry by appealing to the notion of the poet as some holy moron with a license. If Wordsworth or Christina Rossetti had written anything as bad as The Lamb you would laugh and vomit. It's awful:
            Little Lamb who made thee
            Dost thou know who made thee
            Gave thee life & bid thee feed.
            By the stream & o'er the mead;
            Gave thee clothing of delight,
            Softest clothing wooly bright;
            Gave thee such a tender voice,
            Making all the vales rejoice!
            Little Lamb who made thee
            Dost thou know who made thee

            Little Lamb I'll tell thee,
            Little Lamb I'll tell thee!
            He is called by thy name,
            For he calls himself a Lamb:
            He is meek & he is mild,
            He became a little child:
            I a child & thou a lamb,
            We are called by his name.
            Little Lamb God bless thee.
            Little Lamb God bless thee.

            Kek. Read 1805 Prelude which unlike anything else in the world gives one an intimate feel of what it was like to be young and thoroughly alive during the French Revolution. In short, don't presume to report on great poets you know a sum total of (absolutely) NOTHING about.

            That's one (1) poem. Have you read his collected poetry? The fat brick aptly published by Wordsworth Classics? Because even his selected poetry gets boring. His collected poetry has to be the dullest, most bloated poetic corpus ever. By the time you finish it you will hate the guy. Give me Coleridge, Blake, Keats, or Byron instead. Any day of the week.

            The whole point of outsider art is that it makes you reconsider categories like "triteness". And even within the context of the way he consciously produced and framed his work, the Songs of Innocence aren't meant to be read in isolation, so you're either very ignorant or very disingenuous.
            You do know your country used to produce great men, right? With souls and everything? Remember Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dickens? Those guys? You don't *have* to be a smug narrow-minded c**t just because you're English, it's not written in the Magna Carta.

        Never heard of him before, looking up some of his works I like the themes in them, but sometimes it feels like the meter is off or a line ends awkwardly.
