Blake and Eliot both wrote during periods of national upheaval. For Blake, the Industrial Revolution had tilted the country's moral compass towards intolerance and cruelty. For Eliot, the First World War had unmoored cultural certainties. We will study Blake's Songs of Innocence and of Experience and TS Eliot's The Waste Land, the rich new poetry of these national crises.
