A. Waldock, 1928; Bowles by Oskar Rietmann, 1940. Coleridge acknowledged a debt to the Fourteen Sonnets of William Lisle Bowles, speaking of "their mild and manliest melancholy" as giving impetus to his own youthful feelings. " Both accolades now seem surprising. Bowles is the epitome of the second rank of writing which prevailed below the "Romantic" surface between 1780 and 1830, and his place, historically, is fixed by this representative quality. It is difficult to discern much individuality in him.

A few of these later poems are as lucid as the Songs, but "The Mental Traveller" is as difficult as any of the prophetic books, and "The Everlasting Gospel," in which Blake gives his plainest statement of his disagreements with the Churches, was left unfinished. He probably came to feel that the propagation of his gospel could best be accomplished by means of the prophetic books. It is characteristic of Blake's dialectical method that after the contrast in the Songs between the two contrary states of the human soul - good and bad - he should declare in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell that without contraries there is no progression.
