Waves of William Blake & # 39; s principal & # 39; indicates that her author was against the university level. However, after a closer examination, Blake addresses: institutions that kept educating children with strict clinical procedures and creating climate fears that constantly require the child. The poem is sincere and provocative, which reflects Blake's own concern regarding child welfare. Style of working language is simple but effective; tone harmful and melancholic.
& # 39; The Schoolboy & # 39; features six stanzas, each consisting of five lines. In the first stanza, a complex structure is established that has a powerful impact on the rest of the poem. This structure is based on a small set of determining factors, based on basic work for two key pictures, both of which appear perfectly in other stanzas. Nature is clearly an inspiration for Blake and features like animals and plants – "birds" and "trees" in line 2 – are selected as vehicles to represent the child's image in subsequent stanzas. The first stanza stands very slowly apart from the others, where the main concern is to wear clothing that describes the autonomous republic where one lives in harmony with its natural environment on a mutual mutual basis: "The Skylark Sings With Me" (line 4).
This harmony is broken at the beginning of stanza II, which immediately changes tone. At the formal level, the change is obvious by using the word "En", which serves here as a sign that links two stanzas. In terms of meaning, it is evident in the change in the scene, where peaceful scenery is added to the curious environment of the classroom. By repeating, both in "summer" in line 1 and to a lesser extent, "O" in line 2, Blake encourages readers to encourage readers to compare comparison between punches. Repeat the words "summer morn" determines that the rhythm system of this stanza will probably be similar to the first. Not only will ABABB patterns remain, but similar rhyme will also be the same. This is indeed the case with "morn" that rhymes with the inverted word "outworn" in line 3. A similar rhythm is also implemented by repeating the exclamation mark "O". As with other stanzas, this stanza is loosely iambic; however, another odd odd leg "O" encourages the reader to compare with the line in the first stanza where it was originally published. The words "what a good company!" Follow it because it's done by "it drives all the joy away!" The effect of these formal metaphysics increases oral stanzas & # 39; contextual differences.
A card is very important in the classroom, and in the third and fourth stanzas the birds and plants that were created in stanza actually emerged. Blake chooses not to show the children in the classroom on the usual diagrams, but instead places all the literary descriptions with symbols of nature. The use of an imagery is obvious with the word "hanging" in Stanza III, as it raises a picture of a dying plant, but it is evident in Stanza IV where the child resembles an encaged bird. There is reason for Blake looking at the ceremony as a study on two sides. The first of these is the motto, the other expression. In Stanza III, he asked how a child could learn something in such an environment: "I can not take joy in my book," but in the following table, he shows how their natural self-determination is stifled, "Put on a pantry and sing?"
The last two stanzas show how cruel education has damaged the child. In p. V Blake indicates that he is not against all documentaries by encouraging the child's parents to pay attention to their alarms (line 1). The poem describes some dark pictures and ends up with a terrible warning: "When the bombs of winter appear?" However, in his legacy, Blake does not seem to be in education – thirdly, he speaks of joy in a book – and the overall picture suggests that new learning is based on nature rather than classroom.
