Blake creates a bleak picture of hopelessness and despair in his poem London as he is saddened by the effects of the Industrial Revolution. His imagery emphasises the bureaucracy of London streets as he states ‘I wonder thro’ each charter’d street.’
The verb ‘wonder’ creates connotations of freedom and of a relaxed manner, yet this is a juxtaposition as it is contrasted with ‘charter’d street’. To be ‘Charter’d’ means to be owned and managed for profit reflecting the rigid restrictions imposed on people by those in the upper classes of society. Blake can ‘wonder’, yet is restricted. Every aspect of nature is being sold for commercial gain.
