9781493621231: Songs of Innocence and Experience: A Study Guide (Gilbert's Study Guides) (Volume 10)

"Clearly Francis Gilbert is a gifted and charismatic teacher." Philip Pullman, former teacher and author of 'Northern Lights'. Why did William Blake call his book of poetry 'Songs of Innocence and Experience'? Why do some critics say his poem 'The Tyger' is about the French revolution? Why did he illustrate his poems with pictures? Why is Blake's rose "sick"? What is the "youthful harlot's curse" in the famous poem 'London'? This is the ultimate study guide to William Blake's classic poetry collection 'Songs of Innocence and Experience'. Written by an experienced teacher and author, it not only contains all of the relevant verse , but also includes substantive comprehension questions and thorough analysis of every poem. Furthermore, there are sections which discuss Blake's life and the context of his work in depth, the poetic techniques he deployed, and how students can gain a good grade when writing essays on him. Above all, this guide is "Blakean" in spirit; it provides links to the author's video explanations and performed versions of the poems. While it is highly informative -- offering all the analysis required to gain a top mark in an exam or coursework -- it also aims to provoke a genuinely personal response to the poems.

About the Author:

Francis Gilbert has taught for over twenty years in various state schools, but has also worked at certain points as a journalist, novelist and social commentator. He is the author of 'I’m A Teacher, Get Me Out Of Here!', 'Yob Nation', 'Parent Power', 'Working The System', and 'The Last Day Of Term'. In his role as an English teacher and lecturer, he has taught many texts over the years and has devoted a great deal of time to making resources on them. He has written study guides on Jane Austen’s 'Pride and Prejudice', Charlotte Bronte’s 'Jane Eyre', Mary Shelley’s 'Frankenstein', and Robert Louis Stevenson’s 'Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde'. Recently, he has published 'Star-crossed: Romeo and Juliet For Teenagers' and 'Songs of Innocence and Experience: A Study Guide', both available in paperback and for Kindle on Amazon. He has appeared numerous times on radio and TV and is known for his robust defence of his ideas. He currently teaches part-time in a comprehensive in outer London and is completing a PhD in Creative Writing and Education at Goldsmiths College, London. He is the co-founder, with Melissa Benn and Fiona Millar, of The Local Schools Network (www.localschoolsnetwork.org.uk), a blog that celebrates non-selective state schools, and also has his own website, www.francisgilbert.co.uk.
