LARKIN ESSAY TASK
(Poetry: Comparative Essay)
Many of Larkin’s poems start by observing a fairly ordinary scene or incident and then reflecting on some aspect of human nature.

NB: In this context, ‘human nature’ is an invitation for you to consider the THEMES of the poem.
As ever, you are welcome to use the Comments to ask questions.
