1.0 Varies with device
The English poet and printer William Blake first published 'Songs of Innocence' in 1789, hand-etching and hand-coloring each copy. A collection of 19 short, lyrical poems of the Romantic style, 'Songs of Innocence' concerns itself with the naivety, purity and sometimes tragic innocence of youth. Mostly narrated from the perspective of youth, several of the poems carry a somewhat ironic undertone (The Chimney-Sweeper), while others are celebrations of human qualities (The Divine Image). Though he was never afforded such acknowledgement during his lifetime, Blake is now widely regarded as one of the greatest poets of his age.
