P. Larkin “Philip Larkin Poems: Selected by Martin Amis”
For the first time, Faber publish 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
