This is a video analysis of William Blake's London, which is on the Cambridge IGCSE poetry anthology Songs of Ourselves as well as the AQA Poetry Anthology Moon on the Tides. If you want to see some of Blake's art which I discuss in the video, click here. Learn more about me.
Later, I'm going to publish an essay on this poem as well as show how to annotate it, so sign up for updates on the feed or bookmark this page. If you like the site, please share it on facebook, twitter or google+ or wherever else you hang out (even in the real world!)
