    Some critics suggest that Larkin portrays human existence as bleak in his poetry - to what extent do you agree with this view in Mr Bleaney?

    4 star(s)

    Mr Bleaney obviously used to work for a car manufacturing company 'the Bodies, till they moved him'. This could either mean that the company moved him elsewhere or that Mr Bleaney is dead. Larkin then begins to describe the surroundings 'Flowered curtains, thin and frayed, Fall to within five inches of the sill'. This shows a lack of comfort and concern with luxury within the home. Alliteration is used to emphasise this point and the stanza is end stopped to slow down the pace of the poem. The second stanza continues to describe Mr Bleaney's backdrop - 'Whose window shows a strip of building land, tussocky, littered'.
