Description

'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.'

In this simple poem, William Blake draws on the story of the Fall and his own grapples with authority to create a lasting image of vengeance.

In our lesson plan students read the story of the Fall and consider how it relates to Blake's poem.
