Songs of innocence and of experience by William Bolcom( Recording )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This book] combines extreme simplicity of form with complex and mysterious meanings ... In literary terms, [the author] conceived the [book] in a popular genre of illustrated children's books and hymnals, which had a highly conventional eighteenth-century tradition behind it ... Part One largely conforms to the tradition, set in a sunlit, pastoral world of nursery, garden and village-green. Its central ideas are those of joy, comfort, tenderness and parental or divine security; though not exclusively so. Part Two largely subverts the traditions, set in a darker, more dreamlike version of the same landscape with nightmare intimations, glimpses of forests and shadowy city streets, a sense of twilight and nightfall, and menacing animal and insect shapes. Here the central ideas are those of anger, jealousy, anxiety, cruelty, injustice, and an overwhelming protest against the unhappiness in the world. Though again, not exclusively or hopelessly so.-Introd
