ePub The Complete Poems ePub

by Philip Larkin

If you love Larkin's poetry this is an invaluable collection.It includes all of his poetry, that published and that not published but contained in workbooks.What's most valuable is the commentary on each poem.They note not only the judgments and ideas of critics but also what Larkin himself wrote to friends and other writers about what he tried to do.The editor, Archie Burnett, also points out instances when Larkin, through written comment to others or notes scrawled across the pages of a workbook, expressed his own sense of a poem's worth.The great and the minor are here without any particular arrangement.On p115 the great poem "Aubade" is preceded by an untitled limerick.The published work is followed by the more uneven and unpublished poems Larkin kept in his workbooks.The comments on these poems are shorter and less helpful because they're just coming to light.Larkin freely expresses his own disappointment with many of them.And the reader can often see why they were left in the workbooks rather than published.
