My favorite dead, male poet. I have a few favorites; therefore feel the need to differentiate them. Blake is an English poet from the mid- 1750’s. He refuse to compromise his personal vision throughout his career; whether for his own writings or commissioned engravings he always stayed true to himself. Although, I am a fan of many of his works I seem to favor poems from his collection “Songs of Experience”. Because he is a favorite of mind, I will share two of his works “The Tyger” and “A Poison Tree”.
