Philip Larkin Poems


For the first time, Faber publishes a selection from the poetry of Philip Larkin, drawing on Larkin's four collections and on his uncollected poems. Chosen by Martin Amis.

'Many poets make us smile; how many poets make us laugh - or, in that curious phrase, "laugh out loud" (as if there's another way of doing it)? Who else uses an essentially conversational idiom to achieve such a variety of emotional effects? Who else takes us, and takes us so often, from sunlit levity to mellifluous gloom? ... Larkin, often, is more than memorable: he is instantly unforgettable.' - Martin Amis
