  1. Analysis of "Slough" by John Betjemen

    Furthermore, he compares mind and breath to ?tinned milk, tinned beans?, which could possibly be used to symbolise how ?mind and breath? have lost all value or meaning.In addition, he refers to ?peroxide hair? and ?synthetic air?. This could possibly be used by Betjemen to portray the artificial nature of modern living and how unnatural and superficial it is. This cynicism is emphasised by the way in which this poem makes use of lots of enjambment. This could possibly suggest that this poem is a sort of ?rant? by Betjemen, and that he releases all his views in a sort of ?stream of consciousness?.
