Overall comparison

Both act as a response to the neglecting of those in suffering and in need. The poems open a window on a dark world that the government might not want to recognise as a problem. However, War Photographer introduces the theme of war and the impact conflict has on the human psyche. On the other hand, London is a critical response to the failure of the upper class to help build a society, who support each other.
