Philip Larkin free pdf The complete poems of the most admired British poet of his generationThis entirely new edition brings together all of Philip Larkin's poems. In addition to those that appear in "Collected Poems" (1988) and "Early Poems and Juvenilia" (2005), some unpublished pieces from Larkin's typescripts and workbooks are included, as well as verse by turns scurrilous, satirical, affectionate, and sentimental that had been tucked away in his letters. For the first time, Larkin's poems are given a comprehensive commentary. This draws critically upon, and substantially extends, the accumulated scholarship on Larkin, and covers closely relevant historical contexts, persons and places, allusions and echoes, and linguistic usage. Prominence is given to the poet's comments on his own work, which often outline the circumstances that gave rise to a poem or state that he was trying to achieve. Larkin often played down his literariness, but his poetry enrichingly alludes to and echoes the writings of many others. Archie Burnett's commentary establishes Larkin as a more complex and more literary poet than many readers have suspected."
