William Blake–Songs of Experience

Songs of Experience: in which the already dark ‘Songs of Innocence’ are turned darker.  Somehow easier to read, though.  Hearing such grim things come from the mouths of children is far more unsettling than hearing them from an adult.  It’s still painful to think of the children chimney sweeps, but the version in ‘Songs of ‘Experience’ is less tear-jerking.
