'A Poison Tree' by William Blake - Analysis for Edexcel Eng Lit GCSE Conflict Anthology
 
16:52
Summary of Key Points Context Blake was a C18th artist as well as poet and he combined these talents to publish 'illuminated books'. Song of Innocence and Songs of Experience are his two best known collections with 'A Poison Tree' published in the latter. This work presents people as cynical and exploitative, especially of children. An early Romantic, Blake was interested in social justice and against the negative effects of the industrial revolution. He despised the Church of England, with its unnatural demands, but revered the Bible and his writing is heavily influenced by this. We see this in 'A Poison Tree'. Structure The poem is written in four quatrains of rhyming couplets. The line are end stopped which foregrounds the rhyme. This combined with a strong rhythm give the poem the quality of a child's song or nursery rhyme. Much of Blake's early work expresses dark, challenging ideas in this simple way. There are two alternating rhyme schemes within the poem - perhaps suggesting the two sides of the conflict it explores. Lines of trochaic trimeter alternate with longer lines of iambic tetrameter. The sequence of ideas is straightforward: the speaker represses the anger he feels for his foe and it subsequently grows. This is expressed through the metaphor of the poison tree which bears fruit. The speaker's foe eats this 'apple bright' and dies. He's found stretched out beneath the poison tree. Point of View First person narrative - the speaker is sharing his experience for our benefit. There are lessons to be learned - although we must infer them. Imagery 1st quatrain - by repressing anger, 'wrath', it grows inside the speaker. When it was expressed, on the other hand, it dissipated. So there is nothing wrong with anger - only how it is managed. The simple sentences and punctuation seem to reinforce this logic. 2nd stanza - introduces the central metaphor of the poison tree. Not expressing anger is like nurturing a deadly tree. It is 'water'd' and 'suuned' within the heart of the speaker - both day and night, which suggests that this destructive emotion has become an all-consuming passion. 'deceitful wiles' emphasizes the secrecy of the speaker as he harbors his grudge. The hissing sibilance in the stanza adds to its menacing tone. 3rd Stanza - 'both day and night' is repeated. Fed constantly, the poison tree bears fruit - an 'apple bright' symbolizes burning hatred. Blake is here evoking the Book of Genesis. Both the foe and Eve perish by giving in to temptation with death and sin the result. 'And' is repeated, adding to the child-like style of the poem but also creating a relentless pace as the narrative unfolds. The night is presonified - it 'veil'd the pole'. Pole means star, so the night worked to increase the blackness of the scene and the sense of dread. 4th stanza: The final rhyming couplet shifts into the present tense and we are left with the image of the foe stretched out dead- nothing is resolved. The speaker is 'glad' - suggesting his utter corruption as a soul twisted by repressed anger. Themes Anger becomes a destructive emotion when not expressed. It is corrupt and corrupting. 'Smiles' are just a cover - authentic emotion is sacrificed when an obsession takes over. Lies and deceit another theme - the foe steals and the speaker secretly nurtures his anger. 'Wrath' describes God's anger in the Bible. Blake's poem is a kind of parable - we have to infer its symbolism but it is certainly didactic and seems to be teaching us that if we fail to communicate openly and if we lie, only violence and destruction can result.

-This presentation explains the brilliant Blake A Poison Tree poem. Blake was visionary and was practising mindfulness centuries before it became a thing! . He could see outside the confines of religion and the matrix of society - and he wrote and drew abut it. For this he was an outcast during his time on earth but he still read and loved today.This is a piece by a student made for his one to one class with Ms Snow The poem is to be found in the Edexcel anthology for GCSE and many other anthologies. It is about anger growing if it is watered and causing death in the end. It is in the form of a nursery rhyme but the meaning is deceptively complex..Google his pictures they are amazing

"A Poison Tree" William Blake poem (I was angry with my friend; I told my wrath, my wrath did end)
 
01:02
Analysis of William Blake’s “A Poison Tree” Don't confuse the poet with the poem's speaker. Blake has created a character who is “glad” an enemy died. This is close to gallows humor--making light of a subject matter that is generally serious. The poem has the simplicity of a nursery rhyme, but these lines are not fit for children. No reasonable person celebrates death this way. Blake the poet is not saying we should think of ways to kill opponents though the poem’s speaker has no problem with that idea. Blake’s overall purpose is to warn about the danger of repressing anger in early stages. Repressed wrath can lead to unhealthy consequences. We need a healthy catharsis, a productive purging. Since resentment may fester, we are wise to show at least a little anger to an enemy, thereby reducing a yearning for revenge (the poem admits it’s easier to express anger to a friend). It’s a debatable point. I prefer to turn the other cheek or even walk away from trouble. The poem ends with the speaker stumbling upon a dead enemy--a result of anger being hidden--and gloating. No line explicitly says the foe is dead, but “outstretched” can have no other meaning in a poem with “poison” in the title. It’s not a nap. The enemy did not faint. The vindictive speaker would not be “glad” if the foe is merely napping or has fainted. Is the foe’s death (“outstretched”) the narrator's fault? Maybe not--the foe was trespassing “into my garden.” On the other hand, the speaker nurtured a grudge in intense ways--watering the anger (with tears?), sunning the anger. “It” is used several times for wrath. In lines 5, 7, and 9, “it” refers to “wrath” as well as to the poison tree named in the title. The speaker’s anger and the tree are the same. The tree of anger grows enough to produce fruit. Line 10 again uses “it” for the tree (and anger) that produced an apple. In lines 11 and 12, “it” has a new antecedent (“it” refers to the apple). If the apple that was carefully cultivated is too tempting--irresistible!--then we could call this murder. The hidden anger led to a loss of control over events. The tree (of the mind?) seduces the enemy. Does the tree allude to Adam and the Fall of Man in Genesis? Blake was obsessed with the Bible. The poem makes an interesting switch from past to present tense: "glad I see" instead of "glad I saw." Was the poem inspired by the anger of the British towards the American colonies? Or was Blake capturing the British mood towards the recent French Revolution? During these times, people debated if expressing anger is healthy or unhealthy. The rhyme scheme is aabb ccdd eeff gghh. As we hear in the first line, the poem is mostly trochaic: “I was angry with my friend.” Odd-numbered syllables take the emphasis, starting with the poem’s first word (“I”). It’s the same rhythm as “Twinkle, twinkle, little star” and “Mary had a little lamb.” One challenge in vocabulary may be “wiles,” which means tricks or deceptions. “Pole” is used for tree at one point since it rhymes with “stole.” At night the pole or tree is “veiled” or hidden in darkness. Literal darkness echoes the poem’s moral darkness. ____________________________ "A Poison Tree” By William Blake I was angry with my friend; I told my wrath, my wrath did end. I was angry with my foe: I told it not, my wrath did grow. And I water’d it in fears, Night & morning with my tears: And I sunned it with smiles, And with soft deceitful wiles. And it grew both day and night. Till it bore an apple bright. And my foe beheld it shine, And he knew that it was mine. And into my garden stole, When the night had veil'd the pole; In the morning glad I see; My foe outstretched beneath the tree.

William Blake "A Poison Tree" Poem animation
 
00:56
Heres a virtual movie of the great William Blake Engraver,Visionary and Poet reading his poem "A Poison Tree" A Poison Tree is a poem written in 1794 by the poet William Blake as a part of his collection of poems, Songs of Experience. Although it is one of Blake's less known poems, it is full of meaning and is sometimes considered to be one of his finest poems. A Poison Tree" In "A Poison Tree," by William Blake the tree is used as an extended metaphor, which helps explain a truth of human nature. This poem teaches how anger can be dispelled by goodwill or nurtured to become a deadly poison.The opening stanza sets up everything for the entire poem, from the ending of anger with the "friend," to the continuing anger with the "foe." In the opening stanza the speaker states, "My wrath did grow." The speaker later describes the living nature of the wrath as one which, "grew both day and night," and, "bore an apple bright." This comparison by metaphor of wrath to a tree illustrates the speaker's idea that, like the slow and steady growth of a tree, anger and wrath gradually accumulate and form something just as mighty and deadly as a poisoned tree. To understand the metaphorical sense of the poem, one must first examine the title, "A Poison Tree," which alerts the reader that some type of metaphor will dominate the poem. In the second stanza, Blake develops the metaphor, by describing the growing and nurturing of a tree; a tree that represents the feeding of hate and vanity explored by the speaker. The speaker goes further to say, "And I sunned it with smiles" describing not only false intentions, but the processing of "sunning", giving nutrients to a plant so that it may not only grow and live, but flourish. The religious context of the poem is also evident in two metaphorical allusions made by the speaker towards the end of the poem. The deadly fruit borne of the tree is an apple, while the scene of death and treachery occurs in the speaker's garden. The apple is a product of hate, the ironic "fruits of one's labor," and a biblical metaphor for sin. The garden, which could be viewed as a place of life and prosperity, is simply the stage for the sinful act, as it was in the Bible. Like the story of Adam and Eve in the Book of Genesis, man gives in to the weakness of sin and falls. Blake's poetry, while easy to understand and simplistic, usually implies a moral motif on an almost basic level. The powerful figurative language in "A Poison Tree" is so apparent that it brings forth an apparent message as well. The poem is not a celebration of wrath; rather it is Blake's cry against it. Through this, Blake warns the reader of the dangers of repression and of rejoicing in the sorrow of our foes. William Blake wrote this poem to convey a simple message. "A Poison Tree" may be one of Blake's simpler poems, but is just as effective of getting its message across. In this simple but powerful poem, William Blake describes how a feeling of anger soon disappears if there is good will and friendship.

In lines 5, 7, and 9, “it” refers to “wrath” as well as to the poison tree named in the title. The speaker’s anger and the tree are the same. The tree of anger grows enough to produce fruit. Line 10 again uses “it” for the tree (and anger) that produced an apple. In lines 11 and 12, “it” has a new antecedent (“it” refers to the apple). If the apple that was carefully cultivated is too tempting--irresistible!--then we could call this murder. The hidden anger led to a loss of control over events. The tree (of the mind?) seduces the enemy. Does the tree allude to Adam and the Fall of Man in Genesis? Blake was obsessed with the Bible. The poem makes an interesting switch from past to present tense: "glad I see" instead of "glad I saw." Was the poem inspired by the anger of the British towards the American colonies? Or was Blake capturing the British mood towards the recent French Revolution? During these times, people debated if expressing anger is healthy or unhealthy. The rhyme scheme is aabb ccdd eeff gghh. As we hear in the first line, the poem is mostly trochaic: “I was angry with my friend.” Odd-numbered syllables take the emphasis, starting with the poem’s first word (“I”). It’s the same rhythm as “Twinkle, twinkle, little star” and “Mary had a little lamb.” One challenge in vocabulary may be “wiles,” which means tricks or deceptions. “Pole” is used for tree at one point since it rhymes with “stole.” At night the pole or tree is “veiled” or hidden in darkness. Literal darkness echoes the poem’s moral darkness. ____________________________ "A Poison Tree” By William Blake I was angry with my friend; I told my wrath, my wrath did end. I was angry with my foe: I told it not, my wrath did grow. And I water’d it in fears, Night & morning with my tears: And I sunned it with smiles, And with soft deceitful wiles. And it grew both day and night. Till it bore an apple bright. And my foe beheld it shine, And he knew that it was mine. And into my garden stole, When the night had veil'd the pole; In the morning glad I see; My foe outstretched beneath the tree.

A video done by my Form 5 students in 4 periods (2 hours 20 minutes) to summarise and highlight the meaning behind the lines of Stanza Four in the infamous poem. There might be a handful of grammar and spelling errors but do cut these 17-year-olds some slacks.
