Overwhelming, mystical and... menacing
You can consider him mad or otherworldly or sectarian, but you cannot deny his genius. He was truly the prophet of the Romantic age who condemned social evils and slavery. He wasn't appreciated in his time, but, thankfully, he is now regarded as one of the most outstanding figures in poetry and the visual arts.
Here's the list of poems on the audio:
Auguries of Innocence
Introduction to Songs of Innocence
A Cradle Song
Introduction to Songs of Experience
The Chimney Sweeper (Innocence) and The Chimney Sweeper
The Divine Image
A Divine Image
From The Gates of Paradise, For The Sexes, Prologue
Holy Thursday (Innocence) and Holy Thursday (Experience)
The Garden of Love
From An Island in the Moon
A Little Boy Found
A Little Boy Lost
The Little Girl Found
A Little Girl Lost
I Heard an Angel
The Human Abstract

The narrators did a phenomenal job! I was especially interested to hear their reading of the Tyger and A Poison Tree as they are my favourite poems. Masterly presentation!

Master of poetic madness and beauty
William Blake is undoubtedly one of the greatest poets ever lived and still lives through his poetry. He is the Nostradamus of written and visual literature. I used to read his poetry aloud for myself to feel the power of his words better. This audiobook allowed me to hear his powerful words in their meaningful order to be read to me by several passionate readers. I recommend you to buy this audiobook, turn off all the lights (maybe only a candle if you like). Then allow yourself to sit an hour listen to the smoothly dancing words in and around and feel the sweet rush.

The use of several different narrators bringing life to Blake's work adds a poignancy to the poetry that the author would have well-appreciated.

YOU'LL BE MAD
The first narrator sounds like an uneducated drunk Irishman. That it's Blake speaks for itself. But the poems are not named, each chapter is a poem - but no titles. Tyger is chapter 41. Obviously it took me 40 tries to find it. MOST UNFORTUNATE - I then got an e-book of Blake - it too listed only chapters (so you don't know the order). So apparently this is not an Audible failure...still looking for a list by name, so I can follow the narrator.

its very good! Also if your a fan of The Doors the second poem is quoted in End of the Night.

Darkly engaging, delightfully deep
Riveting, magically deep and suspense filled, a dramatic prose that delves into the timelessness of human struggles

Blake and the readers
It feels as though the readers read of this with some connection, rather than convention. I can be swept up in the words with them. I have lost much of my sight, so it's good to have these willing surrogates. I thank you very sincerely and much.
