What Wordsworth's Words Are Worth

While both Wordsworth’s “London, 1802″, and Blake’s “London” paint similar pictures of a grimy turn of the century London, I think that William Wordsworth is able to paint a better picture through the use of his figurative language. 280 more words

Dead Poet's Society

I agree with the statement, “Wordsworth’s ‘London, 1802′ provides a more effective, thorough, and powerful critique of nineteenth-century London’s social and political corruption than Blake’s ‘London’.”  Through the use of rhyme scheme, blatant metaphors and similes, symbolism, and other poetic elements, Wordsworth is able to effectively, thoroughly, and powerfully portray an image of London at this time.   543 more words
