England in 1819 Issues By Ciniya Croskey

Part of Group:

Exposing the truth about England in 1819, Phercy Selley, creates a treasonist sonnet attacking leaders such as George 111. The sonnet exposes England by using imagery and analogies to show how the military and leaders were corrupt. It describes how blind they were to issues in society such as deadly diseases spreading rapidly and unequal rights between men and women that needed to be adressed. It also tells how rulers leeched on their citizens without facing consequences. Throughout the never ending problems Percy Shelley argued that through reform there is still hope for a better nation.
