Young-Hee KIM


This paper compares and analyzes the contents of Blake written from a modernist perspective by Eliot, the greatest poet, philosopher, and critic of his time, and “The Preface” and “The Introduction” of The Works of William Blake edited by Yeats, the greatest poet of Romanticism. So it attempts a new understanding of Blake’s imagination. For this purpose, in the comparisons to the lion with a human’s head in Yeats’ “The Second Coming,” Blake’s poem “The Tyger,” the tiger in “Gerontion” written in the same year as Eliot’s “Blake” in 1920, and the tiger that appears in “Lines for an Old Man,” which Eliot wrote in 1935 after his conversion, and it considers the relationship between imagination and the artist’s educational environment.
