William Blake's highly personal messages of humanity and social conscience are as relevant today as in 18th-century London. Although Blake's works were ignored or dismissed until long after his death, their directness and unsentimental simplicity will strike a chord with many today.

A huge bargain
True, there is no table of contents, but just jot down the time at the start of each poem as you listen, or just do that for your favorites. And, yes, "Songs of Innocence and of Experience" are here in their entirety.
The reader is extremely good, and the amount of content here for the price is really amazing.
Of all the Blake CDs available, this is the one to own.
No T of C?
It would be helpful if iTunes posted the Table of Contents of poetry audiobooks--especially when the audiobook is an abrdiged edition like this one. 5 stars for Blake, but no rating for iTunes store as yet...
Good luck finding what you're looking for.
This is a single 1.5 hour track that is not divided into chapters, and the poems are not marked in any way save a few seconds of silence before the next title. There is no table of contents of any kind. As a result, you're not sure what poems you're getting or where they are located. Having said that, I absolutely love this reading. The reader is both vulnerable and authoritative. He makes these poems his own and increases my own understanding and appreciation of Blake's work. William Blake is probably my favorite poet, and this audiobook makes it even better.
