The language used by Harker throughout the chapter is factual and scientific this style is used to justify the supernaturalism of the chapter.
The opening paragraph personifies the woods around Harker this brings a typical Gothic setting to life. The opening sentence '...hemmed in with trees...' presents the recurring theme of entrapment. The statement itself is anthropomorphic, making the trees seem uncanny, this links to the idea of things not being quite dead, but undead.
