Actually, I would say that there are far more similarities between Blake's
London and America than between New-Po and an people's republic, starting
with the fact that both London and America are geo-political entities.
Beyond that, it doesn't seem to me to be such a stretch to imagine
contemporary America caught in mind-forg'd manacles. You, yourself, see the
the contemporary poetry establishment caught in mind-forg'd manacles.
