The Kids Are All Right
This week in class we discussed William Blake's Songs of Innocence
and Songs of Experience
We read "The Lamb" and "The Tyger" and talked about symbolism, looking at Blake's illustrations for his work. And because every high school junior needs a mental break once in a while, I asked them to team up and draw their own parallel symbols of innocence and experience.
One of the teams drew a cow on the "innocence" side of their paper, and for "experience," they drew a steak.
