Spender, Stephen. "The Pylons".


- the speaker indignantly informs about the change of a rural landscape into an industrial one

- the landscape of hills, stones, and "hidden villages" full of secrets turned into the landscape of concrete pylons and "black wire" bare and naked ("pillars / […] nude giant girls that have no secret")

- concludes with an ambiguous prophecy read high above these hills about "cities / Where often clouds shall lean their swan-white neck"



- irregularly rhymed

- anger about the replacement of an enchanting natural landscape by a vulgar industrial one
