Aalysis of London by William Blake :: essays research papers
Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã¢â¬Å"LondonÃ¢â¬ by William Blake is an emotional tale of man who is going though a crisis in his life and has found himself walking through the streets of London. It leads readers to believe that something has happened which led this man to go on a long walk along the Thames River. The last line of the poem, Ã¢â¬Å"And blights with plagues the Marriage hearseÃ¢â¬ tells the reader that something has happened between this man and his wife. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã As this man is walking, he describes what he sees on peopleÃ¢â¬â¢s faces. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s not a very upbeat description, Ã¢â¬Å"And mark in every face I meetÃ¢â¬ ¦.Mark of weakness, marks of woe.Ã¢â¬ ItÃ¢â¬â¢s like since he is in this miserable place in his life that he thinks everyone else is sad and miserable too. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã This poem makes the reader think about a deeper meaning. Blake has a way of using words to describe the situation in a more emotional sense. Through a man, a chimney-sweeperÃ¢â¬â¢s and an infantÃ¢â¬â¢s cry, it shows an inner pain he carries. But goes off when he mentions a blackening church and bloody palace walls. Makes you think that heÃ¢â¬â¢s a confused person or that he is just setting his surroundings. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã He compares a HarlotÃ¢â¬â¢s curse to a new-born infantÃ¢â¬â¢s tears, which gives the reader the impression that he always thinks the worst of every situation. But the last line of the poem makes you think heÃ¢â¬â¢s going through something with his wife because he talks about a marriage hearse. A hearse represents death and so it could possibly mean the death of the marriage or the death of his wife in general. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã Although he describes the marriage hearse, he talks about a mind-forged manacle that he hears in which doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t fit in with the rest of the poem.
