"Five years, nine Larkinites." I made that comment more than 10 years ago, and today I'm happy to learn that this number has swollen to 35 reviewers, a still-too-low number, posting to both the original Thwaite volume of 1988 (and its subequent editions) and to the new new edition of 2003 that reflects Larkin's own ordering for his poems.
I'm writing here to observe, however, that amazon.com has run reviews of Thwaite's two editions of Larkin into a single sequence, found in both places under books of different covers, as though the paperback 2003 "Collected Poems" is merely some strain of "second edition." It is not. It is a different book, and the books vary in ways apart from the reordering of the poems, which is nevertheless a boon, rectifying editor Thwaite's initial silly and self-important decision, in the 1988 edition, to order the published poems not as Larkin assembled them, in their respective volumes, but by the date the meticulously annotating poet had ceased to tinker with them. The order was thus determined by Thwaite, from Larkin's own revised and dated manuscripts, and literally enjambed in a single long "Poems" section, without the titles of the book mentioned except as an appendix, with the poem titles given in their proper order (with page references to the poems themselves - an awkward system, to say the least). The second version of "Collected Poems" rectifies these wrongs but omits additional poems and notes included in the first.
Dear Amazon, the books deserve differentiated places for their own reviews.
And dear Amazonians: read more Larkin. Again. And again. And continue to cherish him and his memory. (And, while you're at it, obtain and read his Letters - sadly out of print - also redacted by Thwaite, for evidence of Larkin's generosity as a colleague, his smutty-mindedness and fondness for pornography - but you've already figured this out, in abundance, from the poetry - his fondness for, and knowledge of jazz music, his views on writing and writers, and the more controversial aspects of what people believe they espy in unguarded letters to close friends - racism, misogyny, retrograde politics - that ensuing years and research have undermined.
