This poem demonstrates a lot of signs of the immorality. According to this poem, immorality can be reached in the only way by maintaining the hope in our word and embracing happiness. Poet explains in this poem that immorality is something what people chased for years and have never been able to capture during their lives. Taking into account the definition from Webster’s dictionary, we can say that immorality is something what is deathless, not mortal and living forever.

Also title has a great meaning for this poem. By the way, it is considered to be the greatest one among Black’s poems. The title plays the role of symbol which represents the harsh life of a chimney sweeper and his childhood. This boy remains that when his mother died, he was so young and his farther sold him. In other words, his father gave him up when the main character was so young. Blake describes unhappiness as being mortal in a sense that the sweeper’s unhappiness is similar to being dead. But there are some lines in the poem, which can give the reader the certain imagination about the main character. These lines denote that he is an adult now who has certain responsibilities to be the chimney sweeper. But the man doesn’t like his relevant job, and Blake compares that the boy’s childhood was as terrible as the work of a chimney sweeper. The poem seems to have some tragic elements and, of course, it is not the funny story about the man. It is a story from the life, when the young boy is left with his parents and he has nothing to do than to have any job to survive.
Later Blake introduces the new character into the poem “The Chimney Sweeper” and that is why Tom Dacre appears. In the second stanza William Blake is stating the unhappiness of Tom. The tone of the poet changes when he begins the second stanza with the certain words, meeting Tom.
