The 18th century saw the development of children’s literature as a genre: by the middle of the century it had become a profitable business. William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Experience look superficially like traditional century verse for children.

    William Blake, in his two poems “The Lamb” and “The Tiger” addresses these questions. They give a view on religion that shows innocence and saintliness, as well as the frightening and inexplicable. These poems both ask a question about the creator. In the Lamb, the creator question is answered. His poetry varies greatly in style and substance, reflecting the writer's literary development and radical shifts in religious belief. This complete collection of Blake's poetry includes his famous "Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience," which exemplify the author's fondness for thematic dichotomies in poems like "The Lamb" and "The Tyger"/5(9).
