Task 2

The contraries of existence

According to Blake, ‘contraries’ are facts about the world and about the nature of the creative force behind it. For example, ferocious power and energy exist alongside what is fragile and tender. When either one of these dimensions is excluded from the picture, unhealthy splits between what are understood as forces of good and forces of evil are created.

In The Clod and the Pebble, human experience includes both heaven and hell. It is people’s choices that mean their current life is heavenly and/or hellish. The powerful energies within the world and the energies and instincts within human beings are necessary and beautiful. They become destructive when they are denied or seen as the only factor in life and experience.
