Synopses & Reviews
This is one of a series of double-cassette audio packs, containing readings of great poetry by contemporary actors and actresses. Each pack includes the printed text of each work, with background information on the poets. The poems on these cassettes are by William Blake, read by Nicol Williamson.
William Blake's highly personal messages of humanity and social conscience are as relevant today as in 18th-century London. Although Blake's works were ignored or dismissed until long after his death, their directness and unsentimental simplicity will strike a chord with many today.
