The paper illustrates how William Blake's poem "The Chimney Sweeper" uses the familiar tone of nursery rhyme and deploys children's vocabulary and sing-song diction to convey the horrible, limited circumstances of the child speaker's life. The paper explains that the innocence, purity, hopes and light of childhood and heaven are contrasted with the darkness of the soot and the physical, manual labor of chimney sweeping.
