  1. 1. By: Madeleine Smith *
  2. 2. * *Born on November 28, 1757 in London. *Was considered “different” because he believed to see things. *Married Catherine Boucher in 1782. *He earned a living by being an illustrator and engraver for books and magazines. *Was a nonconformist who expressed his opinions through poems and influenced by Emanuel Swedenborg. *Died August 12, 1827.
  3. 3. * * I was angry with my friend: I told my wrath, my wrath did end. I was angry with my foe: I told it not, my wrath did grow. And I watered it in fears, Night and morning with my tears; And I sunned it with smiles, And with soft deceitful wiles. And it grew both day and night, Till it bore an apple bright. And my foe beheld it shine. And he knew that it was mine, And into my garden stole When the night had veiled the pole; In the morning glad I see My foe outstretched beneath the tree.
  4. 4. * *Part of the collection in “Songs of Experience.” *About an author’s angry feelings towards someone that finally leads to murder. *The author also keeps his anger deep inside till it gets to become to much for him and he commits a crime. *He killed his foe underneath a tree and he felt relieved.
  5. 5. * *Ah Sunflower, weary of time, Who countest the steps of the sun; Seeking after that sweet golden clime Where the traveller's journey is done; Where the Youth pined away with desire, And the pale virgin shrouded in snow, Arise from their graves, and aspire Where my Sunflower wishes to go!
  6. 6. * *Part of the collection in “Songs of Experiences.” *The sunflower is supposed to represent people’s aspirations and how at the beginning of the day it is towards the sun but at the end of the day it is down like the sun. *Thus indicating that human aspirations will eventually come to an end.
  7. 7. * *Rhyme Scheme for “A Poison Tree” is AB-CD *Rhyme Scheme for “Ah Sunflower” is also AB- CD. *The meter for “A Poison Tree” is iambic tetrameter. *The meter for “Ah Sunflower” is a triameter.
