    I hate to lay myself open to the charge of pedantry; nonetheless in the poem London, line 3 should read And mark... rather than A mark... - which, when you think about it, makes no sense, does it?

    I really admire the combination of both visual and poetic art that happens in Blake's original publications of his poems. I am always surprised at how people tend to overlook them. There are great copies of the illustrations at http: //www.blakearchive.org/blake/

    William Blake's work is among the best. Love his material, style and formating. His metaphors and imagery are quite interesting, drawing you into the composition. Intriguing.

    William Blake is an inspiration to me. I love reading his poems. They bring out my feelings when I read them.

    William Blake is one of my largest inspirations (no the that anyone really cares what I think!) and I think he was one-hundred years ahead of his time! He blended visual art and poetry, and if he was around now I could see him doing some kind of poetic animation. Blake's influence is scattered across every genre and the minds of many an important thinker.

Best Poem of William Blake

A Poison Tree

I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow.

And I watered it in fears,
Night and morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles.

And it grew both day and night,
Till it bore an apple bright.
And my foe beheld it shine.
And he knew that it was mine,

And into my garden stole
When the night had veiled the pole;
In the morning glad I see
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.

To Tirzah

Whate'er is Born of Mortal Birth
Must be consumed with the Earth
To rise from Generation free:
Then what have I to do with thee?

The Sexes sprung from Shame & Pride,
Blow'd in the morn, in evening died;
But Mercy chang'd Death into Sleep;
The Sexes rose to work & weep.
