    Although I do have to admit that Nancy Willard s A Visit to William Blake s Inn is fantastical, imaginative and yes, at times even rather entertaining and fun, personally, because I have NEVER really all that much been able to either enjoy or even appreciate William Blake as a poet finding his lyric output for the most part frustratingly contrived and artificial, especially if I dare to compare Blake s verses to my two favourite British poets, namely to John Keats and A E Houseman , I was and Although I do have to admit that Nancy Willard s A Visit to William Blake s Inn is fantastical, imaginative and yes, at times even rather entertaining and fun, personally, because I have NEVER really all that much been able to either enjoy or even appreciate William Blake as a poet finding his lyric output for the most part frustratingly contrived and artificial, especially if I dare to compare Blake s verses to my two favourite British poets, namely to John Keats and A E Houseman , I was and remain absolutely and totally less than impressed with and by Willard s verses, which do indeed read very similarly to William Blake but because, as already alluded to above, I really cannot stomach the latter s lyrici...

    This is such a quirky book It s imaginative and odd, charming and occasionally irritating I was thoroughly surprised I decided to read it based on the award winning aspect and didn t know what it was about I somehow thought it would be historical it was instead fanciful, all about an fantastical inn in the sky, run by William Blake, and the creatures who come to stay there One of my favorite poems features two sunflowers who tire of living in a garden and decide to take root in the inn This is such a quirky book It s imaginative and odd, charming and occasionally irritating I was thoroughly surprised I decided to read it based on the award winning aspect and didn t know what it was about I somehow thought it would be historical it was instead fanciful, all about an fantastical inn in the sky, run by William Blake, and the creatures who come to stay there One of my favorite poems fea...
