A Teacher that Cared
The first time I encountered poetry,that seemed intresting to me was in my first semester at Queens College. My professor himself had a love for William Blake's work and understood different views of it. When teaching Blake's poetry he opened my eyes to the true meaning behind poetry and not focus on just one way of reading poetry.
Blake's poetry allows the reader to see two sides of life and gives students a choice of what to do and what path to take. Blake's poetry is a great way of introducing students to the choices they have in life and what path needs to be taken for success. The language used also keeps a student wanting to read on.
