Example text

Bloom ( 1963, 144) connects it with the Tree of Mystery in 'The Human Abstract', and describes it as 'a grisly meditation on the natural consequences of repressed anger'. Hirsch ( 1964, 274-6) notes that the speaker's disease appears more unnatural when 'described as a natural growth', and contends that the poem 'attacks the entire structure of a social order represented by the speaker and his foe'. Gillham (1966, 176-7) points out that the notebook draft is entitled 'Christian Forbearance', and argues that the speaker is not a 'dissembling hypocrite' but 'a man who is self-deceived'.

Charles Lamb'. According to Alan Cunningham, the poem 'touched the feelings of Bernard Barton so deeply' that he wrote to Lamb asking about the author; and Lamb replied that if Blake was still alive he was 'one of the most extraordinary persons of the age'. Cunningham himself included a text of 'The Chimney Sweeper' in the account of Blake which he published in 1830 in his Lives of British Painters; and he declared the poem to be 'rude enough truly, but yet not without pathos'. Swinburne ( 1868, 115-16) reiterated Coleridge's preference for 'Night' and 'The Little Black Boy', but expressed his astonishment that 'The Chimney Sweeper', being 'so slight and seemingly wrong in metrical form', should 'come to be so absolutely right'.

Gillham (1966, 198-201) acknowledges the truth of the child's 'attack on joyless religion', but argues that the poem's technique shows an 'untutored crudity' and that the child pursues 'very private and limited satisfactions'. Though he rejects this last phrase, Leader ( 1981, 172-4) considers that the speaker's acuteness is 'tricked out with the designedly endearing awkwardnesses of the faux naif or child actor'. Gardner (1986, 115-18) observes that the poem's 'jaunty internal rhymes' contribute to a 'vagabond verse' which lacks 'proper deference to authority either parental or ecclesiastical'; and he provides useful evidence on the probable character of 'dame Lurch' and on the exclusion of poor people from services.
