Question: How did the Industrial Revolution affect the poetry of William Blake and William Wordsworth?


Okay, I'm not quite sure if I understand this correctly. Wasn't Wordsworth a supporter of the IR? And wasn't Blake thought to see the IR as a prophetic sign of the transformation of the world and hope that society would of been destroyed and remade?

But were the two Romantics after shunning the IR for it bought the change of being not close to nature in Europe?

Was Blake seeking peace? He had obvious Christian themes in his poetry?

And didn't Wordsworth think the world was happening too fast?
