Overview: Brings together all of Phillip Larkins published work between 1940 and 1984.
What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:
Chris: “A poet who was able to capture in a word or a phrase that which the rest of us struggle to describe at all. Read any of his poems and wonder at the beauty of his language..”
Ethan: “Sometimes poets live remarkable lives full of scandal, war, and controversy. Sometimes they are quite individuals who just simply write with absolute brilliance. Larkin is the later; a master of his craft.”
Deborah: “Aging and death are haunting themes that Philip Larkin places detailed emphasis on. Larkin puts into perspective how aging takes place and certainly does not romanticize or sugarcoat the process.”
