This paper provides a look at the life of poet William Blake and who influenced his work. The author specifically examines Blake's poem "The Lamb" and how the poet distinguished his unique style through the incorporation of religious symbolism, creative lines and simplistic patterns.

From the Paper:

"The Lamb" was published as part of a series of poems in 1789 titled the "Songs of Innocence"; actually, William Blake wrote "The Lamb" and the other works as part of a series of lyrics. The entire work represents an enlightened state in Blake's life, and it was written before a contrary, darker state of mind in the 1793 sequel, the Songs of Experience. Blake was influenced by Emanuel Swedenborg, a writer who gave Christianity a mystical interpretation, and that influenced is found in Blake's work, like "The Lamb," poems that were more simplistic in style and nature before he became more contrition and prophetic in the "Songs of Experience". Through simplistic structure, he chose the narrator of a child, as in this poem, told through childlike eyes, speaking of the innocence of all us, and that the lamb is Christ, marveling over God's creations."
