  • Analysis of Blake's poem London

    he shared with the sans-culottes. His poem "London" is a rare example of a violent, revolutionary indictment of both the Establishment and the Industrial revolution. This poem is an indictment and a battle cry. Not only does it present images of human suffering observed on a stroll around London, but it also suggests a certain vision of humanity as Blake defended it, for example in his Songs of Innocence a few years before (1789).
