Compare and Contrast with Detailed Reference Used to the Language Used How Blake and Wordsworth have described the City in London and Westminster Bridge The poets Blake and Wordsworth have wrote two opposing poems which express different opinions of industrial places I will be comparing the language and attitude expressed by both poets Blake seems to express extreme dislike towards London whilst Wordsworth expresses like and peace in his view towards Westminster Bridge In the first two lines Blake expresses clear dislike in the way the Thames has been treated In the first line he gives the word charterd meaning by saying that the streets are each charterd street this gives the meaning of mapped He calls the Thames mapped because of the way it has been modified to flow in a direction to mans liking he is also saying that the Thames is now as unnatural as the city Blake dislikes this as we know he is a natural loving person He the goes on to say that man is spiritually weak marks of weakness marks of woe and that people are saddened at having to live in the city He than goes on in the second stanza by saying that children see the way Blake does in every infants cry of fear and that they have not yet accepted that they have no choice but to live in London He stresses this by later saying The mind-forgd manacles I hear by saying that man has imprisoned himself in the town and that they believe that there is no way in which they can leave In the third stanza he stresses that people do not want to be in London by giving reasons He states that the Chimney-sweeper is under attack from soot He continues to say that the Church is appalled and ruined and is probably saying that the church has turned black due to the amount of pollution in Londons air
