  1. Poetic and critical description of London and Londoners
  2. London's institutions: Church, Soldier and Harlot

William Blake's version of the city of London is a rather negative picture. In his poem "London", the speaker shows a much damaged population. Though the description is one of a plagued eighteenth-century London, the poem is meant to relate the condition of more than a single city in a single time. The speaker intends, to criticize the way of living not only in London at that time, but also in every other place where people are suffering, using figures of speech.
