Thwaite has gathered all the poems Larkin wrote between 1946 and 1985, the year of his death; he also includes a generous selection of work written earlier, before Larkin found his characteristic voice. In all, there are some 240 poems, 83 of them never published before. The unpublished work comes from every period of Larkin's career and increases by half the number of poems in his canon. The poet we now have is considerably more prolific than the one who issued only three small, mature collections in his lifetime. With or without the new poems, Larkin is a major postwar British writer, and this is the best available collection of his poetry. An essential addition to both academic and general libraries.

Philip Larkin is an one of those poets you stumble across and you have to have more. You get tangled in his poems and than you want to know who he is. Both collide in this book. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Amy Lowell
Love Philip Larkin's poetry & was excited to find this treasure. Nice condition & great price, too!Published 14 months ago by Pat B.
Great condition, a great deal larger than most books of poetry though. It is about the same size of a novel.Published 21 months ago by Sheila McQuaid
