About Reflections on Literature, Life and the Imagination

Previous Entry Two Great New U-Tube Songs Aug. 28th, 2010 @ 10:02 am Next Entry
 These songs were discovered by students studying William Blake this semester.
First there is this wonderful video of Allen Ginsberg singing Blake’s “The Nurse’s Song”. Ginsberg was one of the most passionate advocates of William Blake, especially Blake’s quest for freedom from oppression and all kinds of social injustice.

and then there is Jim Morrison’s DOORS singing “There Are Things Known, And Things Unknown , And Inbetween Is A Door “-

The Doors took their name from William Blake’s phrase “The Doors of Perception”-
