This lesson builds on the previous lessons by taking students’ basic understanding of the poem to a deeper level. Students learn that authors reveal the theme of a poem to a reader by repeating ideas. They learned this by examining the structural elements discussed in Lessons 2 and 3 when they looked for repeating ideas in the poem. Understanding the theme, and how a writer helps the reader to understand that theme, relates to the culminating writing task where students will write about the structures that Blake uses to convey the theme of the poem.
