The Lamb
Little Lamb who made thee Dost thou know who made thee Gave thee life & bid thee feed. By the stream & o’er the mead; Gave thee clothing of delight, Softest clothing wooly bright; Gave thee such a tender voice, Making all the vales rejoice! Little Lamb who made thee
小羊羔谁创造了你 你可知道谁创造了你

给你生命,哺育着你 在溪流旁边,在青草地; 给你穿上好看的衣裳, 最软的衣裳毛茸茸多漂亮; 给你这样温柔的声音, 让所有的山谷都开心; 小羔羊谁创造了你

? Dost thou know who made thee Little Lamb I’ll tell thee, Little Lamb I’ll tell thee! He is called by thy name, For he calls himself a Lamb: He is meek & he is mild, He became a little child: I a child & thou a lamb, We are called by his name. Little Lamb God bless thee. Little Lamb God bless thee.

? 你可知道谁创造了你, 小羔羊我要告诉你; 他的名字跟你一样, 他也称他自己是羔羊; 他温顺有和蔼, 他变成了一个小小孩, 我是个小孩你是个羔羊 咱两的名字跟他的一样。 小羔羊上帝保佑你。 小羔羊上帝保佑你。 杨苡译

The Tyger
Tyger Tyger, burning bright In the forests of the night; What immortal hand or eye, Could frame thy fearful symmetry? In what distant deeps or skies. Burnt the fire of thine eyes? On what wings dare he aspire? What the hand, dare seize the fire?
老虎!老虎!黑夜的森林中 燃烧着的煌煌的火光, 是怎样的神手或天眼 造出了你这样的威武堂皇? 你炯炯的两眼中的火 燃烧在多元的天空或 深渊? 他乘着怎样的怎样的翅膀击? 用怎样的手来夺火焰?

The to the lamb in the penultimate And what shoulder, &reference what art, 什么样的臂力,什么样的技艺 stanza reminds the reader that a tiger and a lamb Could twist the sinews of thy heart? 才能拧成你那心脏的腱肌? have been created by the same God, and raises questions the implications of this. It also And when thy heart beganabout to beat, 什么样的手 ,什么样的脚 , invites a contrast between the perspectives of What dread hand? what dread feet? 才使得你的心脏开始弹跳? “& experience ” and “innocence ”

What the hammer? what the chain, 用什么样的锤子?什么样的链条? In what furnace was thy brain? 在什么样的炉里炼成了你的大脑? What the anvil? what dread grasp, 在什么样的铁砧上?用什么样的臂力 Dare its deadly terrors clasp! 敢抓住这可以致命的可怕东西? When the stars threw down their spears 当星星投下他们的矛枪, And water’d heaven with their tears: 用他们的泪水浇灌穹苍, Did he smile his work to see? 他见到自己的作品时可微笑? Did he who made the Lamb make thee? 难道是他造了你也造了羊羔?

Artistic Features
1.Imagination is the most important source of his creation. Blake’s world of imagination
Auguries of Innocence Opening lines: To see a world in a grain of sand And a heaven in a wilder flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand And eternity in an hour.

一沙一世界, 一花一天堂。 无限掌中置, 刹那成永恒。

Artistic Features
2. The poet managed to get rid of the shackles of ration through imagination.
Blake’s verses repeatedly praise the theme of reviving human’s imagination and enthusiasm and being a true man. Blake remarked that ration isn’t equivalent to our ability to acquire more knowledge.

3.Blake created a unique theological system

Artistic Features
? The philosophical perspective of Blake: contrast

The rhetorical technique
? Some of Blake’s favorite rhetorical techniques are personification and the reworking of Biblical symbolism and language. ? Many of the poems are narrative in style; ? make their arguments through symbolism or by means of abstract concepts. ? Blake frequently employs the familiar meters of ballads, nursery rhymes, and hymns, applying them to his own, often unorthodox conceptions.

? Blake reminds people that contrast is the best and correct way in viewing the object. ? Blake used his “devil’s wisdom” to show the contrast clearly: attacks the industrialization and rationalism directly and advocate the innocent world as well by his unique words and writing style which still embody contrast everywhere.

? He writes poem to make people realize how the ruling class oppresses people, how they fetter people’s thoughts and emotions. ? He propose the way to solve is imagination and religion.
