The Little Black Boy Analysis



Author: poem of William Blake Type: poem Views: 117

Sponsored Links



My mother bore me in the southern wild,

And I am black, but O! my soul is white.

White as an angel is the English child:

But I am black as if bereav'd of light.



My mother taught me underneath a tree

And sitting down before the heat of day.

She took me on her lap and kissed me,

And pointing to the east began to say.



Look on the rising sun: there God does live

And gives his light, and gives his heat away.

And flowers and trees and beasts and men receive

Comfort in morning joy in the noon day.



And we are put on earth a little space..

That we may learn to bear the beams of love.

And these black bodies and this sun-burnt face

Is but a cloud, and like a shady grove.



For when our souls have learn'd the heat to bear

The cloud will vanish we shall hear his voice.

Saying: come out from the grove my love & care.

And round my golden tent like lambs rejoice.



Thus did my mother say and kissed me.

And thus I say to little English boy.

When I from black and he from white cloud free,

And round the tent of God like lambs we joy:



Ill shade him from the heat till he can bear,

To lean in joy upon our fathers knee.

And then I'll stand and stroke his silver hair,

And be like him and he will then love me.

.: :.

The poem is in heroic quatrains, which are stanzas of pentameter lines rhyming ABAB. The form is a variation of the ballad stanza, and the slightly longer lines are well siuted to the pedagogical tone of this poem.

.: :.

The poem expresses the christian theology that states that: in life we must suffer if we are but to rejoice with God forever. But, the poem actually criticizes this and subtly expresses that religion is brain washing society into believing it. It shuns religion by introducing the poem uttered by a child which for romantics is almost an ideology that they are the innocence that is free from the prejudices of society. The twist however, is that the child is black and once again there is a social concern of inferiority. So, the entire poem is a criticism of society and its doctrines that are shoved- down our throats.

And pointing to the east began to say.
Look on the rising sun: there God does live
And gives his light, and gives his heat away.
And flowers and trees and beasts and men receive
Comfort in morning joy in the noon day.
And we are put on earth a little space..
That we may learn to bear the beams of love.
And these black bodies and this sun-burnt face
Is but a cloud, and like a shady grove.
For when our souls have learn\'d the heat to bear
