Sunday Slam: Poetry Death Match – Blake Vs. Wordsworth

 

 

 

While it is unclear if these poets actually knew each other, it is very clear that Blake took issue with the works of Wordsworth.

Wordsworth was a hired gun – hired by the church to beautify London, and to make the church look a bit less evil at that time.
