In the poem Here by Philip Larkin, there are many different techniques that Larkin uses to convey his attitude toward the places he describes. Larkin describes a type of farmland, a large town, a sub-urb off the town and a place past the towns that grows freely.
Larkin seems to portray a peaceful tone to the first stanza, and the poem starts of pastoral. He uses a lot of imagery, such as: "rich industrial shadows" , "gold clouds" , and "shining gull-marked mud." In the second stanza the tone is more harsh, like he is telling the readers that he doesn't enjoy large towns as much as the country.
Thats all my essay has for now.
