Definitely mention that Blake is a Romantic poet. Maybe also link it to the French Revolution and say that the poet was anti-monarchy and was a voice for the oppressed ('runs in blood down palace walls' was the quote I think). Blake wrote to expose the suffering of the poorer people in London and the poem was from his collection 'Songs of Experience', which explores the misuse of power and corruption in the world.
