London for William Wordsworth
"London, 1802" reveals both Wordsworth's moralismand his growingconservatism.In this sonnet, he
urges morality and selflessnessto his readers,criticisingtheEnglish for being stagnant and selfish,for
lacking"virtues and freedom." But he also refers to "inward happiness"as a natural English right,a
more positiveview of London that is more concerned with the buildings and viewof London.
London - W. Blake
-Blake talks aboutthe society dominated by material goods; where the power is represented by the
money. Blakealso tells us aboutthe cries of pain of children’s ,forced to work during the industrial
revolution.
-materialismcaused the"mind - forg'd manacles", that indicatethe mental captivity that affects the
citizens of London.
-Blake once again describes whathe feels as he walks in the streets; He do a reference to syphilis,a
venereal diseasevery common in the nineteenth century.
Oliver twist- Charles Dickens
Dickens recognized and highlighted the daily dramasthat influenced the industrial modernity which
forced children to crimein order to survive.
the author cleverly paints a gray and smog-filled Victorian London,where some people are ready to
steal,kidnap and mislead anyonewho comes within range.
In the English capital Dickens spenthis wholelife,experimenting with the most varied aspects of the
metropolis,its lights,sounds,smells and alwayscontinuingto meet people exploited to be ableto
report its tragic situation.
In Oliver Twist,
London appears as a real industrial 'jungle':the landscapes described by the author are corrosive and
the places arefull of chaos.
Robert Stevenson; his vision of London
Stevenson in describingthe Victorian London in his book The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
uses the duality of the two characters:the gentlemen Dr. Jekyll,and Mr. Hyde , that found a placefor
his wickedness on London's dark streets.
Through his vivid description of setting, Stevenson uses London's contrastto create deeper meaning
and references in his story.
London for George Orwell
in his famous book 1984 we can observe Orwell’ s vision of London . In his book Orwell represented
London as a gray,schematic, organized city,empty of feelings and ideas and popul ated by a humanity
now reduced to littlemore than an obedient and depressed automaton. A city very different from the
real one in which we move today.
London scenes - Virginia Woolf
In “London scenes” Virginia paints whithis emotions some places of the city.
She marks virtues and bad habits of the capital,merit,defects and his contradictions;But she narrate
with love becauseLondon is composed by good and bad points.
