The clod has been moulded and shaped by its conditions and in spite of the negative experiences of being downtrodden, the clod emerges as enlightened and believing in a more perfect and selfless love. The brook is a small river in which the water symbolically represents a connection between the realm of innocence, virtue and purity and that of experience, materialism and worldliness.

The Clod and the Pebble by William Blake, an analysis

The water representing the state of experience flows over the pebble leaving it unchanged and yet experienced and set in its opinions. The symbolism inherent in the concepts of heaven and hell draws on pre-existing imagery of spiritual places of peace and joy, and evil and suffering, respectively.

First Stanza

The contrasting views Blake encapsulates in this beautifully succinct poem of innocence and experience, reflects the diverse range of human experiences of love. In this short lyric from his collection, Songs of Experience, Blake contrasts two opposed views of love, one selfless, the other selfish.

The clod of clay, endlessly malleable, expresses a soft view of love.
