  10. 10. The first feeling we see from Mr Allman is one of intense anger. As we can see from his body language, his “clenched fist” is symbolic of a man who is in a state of aggression and, perhaps, willing to cause damage. In the same way, the “snarl” that we see on his face suggests that he is becoming animalistic, feral and savage. His mind could be in a state of uncontrollable vexation. Alternatively, the picture could suggest that he is feeling triumphant. The “clenched fist” could imply that he is delighted with some result and outcome, perhaps with his teaching or that he has overcome a doubt. The “facial expressions” could indicate that he is satisfied and content with what has happened and is ensuring that he delights in the moment.
  11. 11. London By William Blake
  12. 12. London I wander through each chartered street, Near where the chartered Thames does flow, And mark in every face I meet Marks of weakness, marks of woe. In every cry of every man, In every infant’s cry of fear, In every voice, in every ban, The mind-forged manacles I hear: How the chimney-sweeper’s cry Every black’ning church appalls, And the hapless soldier’s sigh Runs in blood down palace walls. But most through midnight streets I hear How the youthful harlot’s curse Blasts the new-born infant’s tear, And blights with plagues the marriage hearse. WILLIAM BLAKE

  23. 23. London I wander through each chartered street, Near where the chartered Thames does flow, And mark in every face I meet Marks of weakness, marks of woe. In every cry of every man, In every infant’s cry of fear, In every voice, in every ban, The mind-forged manacles I hear: How the chimney-sweeper’s cry Every black’ning church appalls, And the hapless soldier’s sigh Runs in blood down palace walls. But most through midnight streets I hear How the youthful harlot’s curse Blasts the new-born infant’s tear, And blights with plagues the marriage hearse. WILLIAM BLAKE
  24. 24. The first feeling we see from Mr Allman is one of intense anger. As we can see from his body language, his “clenched fist” is symbolic of a man who is in a state of aggression and, perhaps, willing to cause damage. In the same way, the “snarl” that we see on his face suggests that he is becoming animalistic, feral and savage. His mind could be in a state of uncontrollable vexation.

The “facial expressions” could indicate that he is satisfied and content with what has happened and is ensuring that he delights in the moment.
  25. 25. One of the main feelings we see from Blake about London is that he thinks it is disgusting. He tells us about “Every Black’ning church”, providing us with a grotesque image of churches. The fact that he uses the word “black’ning” suggests that the church is continuing to become black from pollution, indicating that it will get worse. The word “every” is vital, as it tells us that he thinks that this happens to all of the churches: none can escape. Alternatively, we could interpret his feelings of anger if we see the word “black’ning” as a metaphor for corruption. The image would then tell us that the church is becoming more evil. In this way, Blake conveys a feeling of distrust at the church and all it should stand for.
