Jean Hartley
A version of the talk delivered at the University of Hull on 15 November 2000. With her husband, George Hartley, Jean founded The Marvell Press, which published Larkin's first mature poetry collection, The Less Deceived , in 1955.
My own introduction to his work came in 1953 when I was 20 and helping to edit a poetry magazine called Listen Green-shadowed people sit, or walk in rings,
Their children finger the awakened grass,
Calmly a cloud stands, calmly a bird sings. After he has established this idyllic but commonplace vision of nature and humanity in harmony, he shocks us with the image of himself, 'an indigestible sterility'. It sounds awkward and convoluted after the smooth, then buoyant rhythms of the lines that preceded it. Then he pins our ears back by moving into poetic-passionate mode: Spring, of all seasons most gratuitous,
Is fold of untaught flower, is race of water,
Is earth's most multiple, excited daughter. That last line, a somewhat clumsy cluster of vowels and consonants, is difficult to read aloud but its loaded metaphor for spring thrills me even now, nearly fifty years after I first read it.

var TlxPgNm='larkin'; Philip Larkin
I work all day, and get half-drunk at night. Waking at four to soundless dark, I stare. In time the curtain-edges will grow light. Till then I see what's really always there: Unresting death, a whole day nearer now, Making all thought impossible but how And where and when I shall myself die. Arid interrogation: yet the dread Of dying, and being dead, Flashes afresh to hold and horrify.
The mind blanks at the glare. Not in remorse The good not done, the love not given, time Torn off unusednor wretchedly because An only life can take so long to climb Clear of its wrong beginnings, and may never; But at the total emptiness for ever, The sure extinction that we travel to And shall be lost in always. Not to be here, Not to be anywhere, And soon; nothing more terrible, nothing more true.
This is a special way of being afraid No trick dispels. Religion used to try, That vast moth-eaten musical brocade Created to pretend we never die, And specious stuff that says No rational being Can fear a thing it will not feel

Philip Larkin
Words as plain as hen-birds' wings
Do not lie,
Do not over-broider things-
Are too shy. Thoughts that shuffle round like pence
Through each reign,
Wear down to their simplest sense,
Yet remain. Weeds are not supposed to grow,
But by degrees
Some achieve a flower, although
No one sees.
Since the majority of me
Since the majority of me
Rejects the majority of you, Debating ends forwith, and we Divide. And sure of what to do We disinfect new blocks of days For our majorities to rent With unshared friends and unwalked ways, But silence too is eloquent: A silence of minorities That, unopposed at last, return Each night with cancelled promises They want renewed. They never learn.
To put one brick upon another
To put one brick upon another, Add a third and then a forth, Leaves no time to wonder whether What you do has any worth. But to sit with bricks around you While the winds of heaven bawl Weighing what you should or can do Leaves no doubt of it at all.
Mother, Summer, I
My mother, who hates thunder storms, Holds up each summer day and shakes It out suspiciously, lest swarms

SELF HYPNOSIS ' 'Dr Ram Jam Singh has made a special study of traditional practices of the MYSTICS OF THE EAST and offers you the WISDOM OF CENTURIES to help conquer blushing, shyness, lack of concentration, stammering, tobacco-smoking, nail-biting etc.' ' Send no money except a P.O. for 6d and s.a.e. for first FREE lesson to Dr Ram Jam Singh, 213 Corporation Road, Burnley, Lancs.' I'll show it to you one day: it's too big for an envelope. Not sure I shan't make it my official picture."
(letter to Judy Egerton, 5 May 1959)
On this page, you can find a number of poems by Philip Larkin. I have started by inserting those poems which I already had on file. I hope to add more poems later on. However, you can read all poems in the Collected Poems (Ed. Anthony Thwaite), of course. I strongly recommend it. I have also added a section with some excerpts from letters by Larkin (1941-1950). It had been my intention to anthologize, as it were, the most memorable quotes from the Selected Letters of Philip Larkin: 1940-1985 (Ed. Anthony Thwaite), but there is simply too much material to be included. If I ever do continue, I will update the online version as well.

B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Philip Arthur Larkin (1922-1985) English poet, novelist, and critic, a leading figure of 'The Movement,' term coined to describe a group of British poets that coalesced during the 1950s, about the same time as the rise of the 'Angry Young Men'. 'The Movement' poets addressed everyday British life in a plain, straightforward language and often in traditional forms. It attracted first attention with the publication of the anthology New Lines , edited by Robert Conquest. Among its writers were Philip Larkin, Kingsley Amis , Donald Davie and Thom Gunn. Conquest saw the group's work "free from both mystical and logical compulsions and - like modern philosophy - is empirical in its attitude to all that comes." Larkin's best-known books were THE LESS DECEIVED (1955), THE WHITSUN WEDDINGS (1964), and HIGH WINDOWS (1974). "It is not sufficient to say that poetry has lost its audience, and so need no longer consider it: lots of people still read and even buy poetry. More accurately, poetry has lost its old audience, and gained a new one. This has been caused by the consequences of a cunning merger between poet, literary critic and academic critic (three classes now notoriously indistinguishable): it is hardly an exaggeration to say that the poet has gained the happy position wherein he can praise his own poetry in the press and explain it in the class-room, the the reader has been bullied into giving up the consumer's power to say 'I don't like this, bring me something different.'"

Talking in Bed , Ambulances , High Windows , Sad Steps and Aubade .
Philip Larkin (1922 — 1985) Talking in Bed Talking in bed ought to be easiest, Lying together there goes back so far, An emblem of two people being honest. Yet more and more time passes silently. 5 Outside, the wind's incomplete unrest Builds and disperses clouds about the sky, And dark towns heap up on the horizon. None of this cares for us. Nothing shows why At this unique distance from isolation 10 It becomes still more difficult to find Words at once true and kind, Or not untrue and not unkind. Ambulances Closed like confessionals, they thread Loud noons of cities, giving back None of the glances they absorb. Light glossy grey, arms on a plaque, 5 They come to rest at any kerb: All streets in time are visited. Then children strewn on steps or road, Or women coming from the shops Past smells of different dinners, see 10 A wild white face that overtops Red stretcher-blankets momently As it is carried in and stowed, And sense the solving emptiness That lies just under all we do, 15 And for a second get it whole, So permanent and blank and true. The fastened doors recede.

Add to a Notebook Philip Larkin Philip Larkin was born in 1922 in Coventry, England. He attended St. John's College, Oxford. His first book of poetry, The North Ship , was published in 1945 and, though not particularly strong on its own, is notable insofar as certain passages foreshadow the unique sensibility and maturity that characterizes his later work. In 1946, Larkin discovered the poetry of Thomas Hardy and became a great admirer of his poetry, learning from Hardy how to make the commonplace and often dreary details of his life the basis for extremely tough, unsparing, and memorable poems. With his second volume of poetry, The Less Deceived (1955), Larkin became the preeminent poet of his generation, and a leading voice of what came to be called "The Movement," a group of young English writers who rejected the prevailing fashion for neo-Romantic writing in the style of Yeats and Dylan Thomas . Like Hardy, Larkin focused on intense personal emotion but strictly avoided sentimentality or self-pity.
