Simple Analysis Of London 1802 By William Wordsworth


There are some occasions when a perfect nation derails as a result of poor governance or wrongly enacted policies. In such atmosphere, moral values are nowhere to be found and criminal acts are seen dominating. While many people gather to wonder what has gone wrong, the wise ones pick their hearts to crave the presence of a hero who is capable of creating the needed positive turnaround.

The poem title "London, 1802" by William Wordsworth, exemplified something similar. The poet recounted the time when London lost its track politically, religiously and socially. These are the reasons why the poem carry the theme of heroism, the theme of ill-governance, the theme of morality, the theme of nature, the theme of patriotism, etc.
