I would like to start a general Blake thread. I really enjoy Blake but I feel like I came to him quite late on in university and have now lost the opportunity to talk to people there about his work (I'm finished uni now). I think I still have a long way to to go with fully understanding a lot of Blake (my essay on Blake was one of my least successful in the last two years) and I still have a lot more to read.
I've seen there have been quite a few threads started about Blake's greater known works: Songs of Innocence and Experience and The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, in particular. I think these are brilliant but I'd also like to discuss and learn more about the rest of his work.
To start off I'll say I have read (as well as those mentioned above): America, Europe, The Song of Los, The First Book of Urizen, The Book of Ahania, The Book of Los, and Auguries of Innocence.
I have a Blake: The Complete Poems but it's a pretty large book. Can anyone advise me as to what I should read next? Are there any specific poems you'd like to discuss?
I know these author sub-forums don't always get a lot of attention but I'll keep popping back periodically so even if you stumble across this thread in a few weeks/months/years I'll try to reply.
