Introduction

Psychogeography and the Literary City
Chapter

Abstract

London, in Blake’s eponymous poem, is bleak, nightmarish and full of death symbolism. The poem creates a vision of London dominated by poverty and oppression, radiating prophetic anxiety with a powerful transformative quality. In “London,” Blake evokes a city that is simultaneously real and imagined.
