Collected poems by Philip Larkin( Book )

88 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the best-known and best-loved poets of the English-speaking world, Philip Larkin had only a small number of poems published during his lifetime. "Collected Poems" brings together not only all his books--"The North Ship," "The Less Deceived," "The Whitsun Weddings," and "High Windows-"--But also his uncollected poems from 1940 to 1984. This new edition reflects Larkin's own ordering for his poems and is the first collection to present the body of his work with the organization he preferred. Preserving everything he published in his lifetime, the new "Collected Poems" is an indispensable contribution to the legacy of an icon of twentieth-century poetry

Poetry today : a critical guide to British poetry, 1960-1984 by Anthony Thwaite( Book )

51 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in English and held by 902 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the most authoritative and up to date survey of contemporary British poetry. It is the third version of a successful survey that first appeared in 1973, and provides a succinct and accessible overview of British poets, movements and themes. The study begins with the poetry of Robert Graves and considers such influential figures as John Betjeman, W.H. Auden, Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, but much of the book focuses on the work of poets who have come into prominence recently, including Wendy Cope, Carol Ann Duffy, Simon Armitage, Glyn Maxwell, Sean O'Brien, and the 1995 Nobel prize winner for literature Seamus Heaney. Anthony Thwaite has completely updated and expanded his earlier version

Contemporary English poetry : an introduction by Anthony Thwaite( Book )

Going out by Anthony Thwaite( )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now that he is eighty-four, Anthony Thwaite says that Going Out is likely to be the last book of poems he publishes in his lifetime, and that the title is apt. But the words are wistful, even playful, and that is true of some of the book's contents. The poems range over times and places, commemorating friends (especially the poet Peter Porter), and draw on memories, hard-won faith, self-questioning. As Michael Frayn has put it, Thwaite 'writes with simplicity and precision about difficult and ambiguous things, the complexity and unceasingness of the world, the vastness and richness of the past, the elusiveness of the present - and the heroic persistence of our efforts to fix some trace of all this.' -- from back cover
Larkin at sixty( Book )

12 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many would call Philip Larkin the finest living poet writing in English. In this tribute to him on his sixtieth birthday, twenty writers have come together to celebrate the man and the poet with some specially written pieces. Some of them are reminiscent, some look at aspects of his professional life as librarian, some consider his taste as it reveals itself in his writings on jazz and in his editing of the 'Oxford Book of Twentieth Century English Verse'. The relationship between his novesls and his poems is examined, and several essays explore the poems themselves. Three poets contribute hitherto unpublished poems. Together, all these illuminate with affection and insight the work, the man behind the work, and the appeal of both

The deserts of Hesperides; an experience of Libya by Anthony Thwaite( Book )

11 editions published between 1969 and 2015 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a record of my life in and reactions to Libya during the two periods I have lived there: first as a British army conscript in Tripolitania from June 1950 to July 1951, then as a university teacher in Cyrenaica from September 1965 to July 1967. That there is a connection between the two - that my second stay was the result of my first - quickly becomes apparent. To revisit a Land of Lost Content is supposed to be a mistake, and I dare say it generally is. One thinks of those public school Captains of Games who, on leaving university, tunnel back as quickly as possible into the gold

Further requirements : interviews, broadcasts, statements and book reviews, 1952-85 by Philip Larkin( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Larkin's Required Writing, his selection from his miscellaneous prose 1955-82, was highly praised and enjoyed when it appeared in 1983. It was the last book to be published by him during his lifetime and won the W.H. Smith Award. It was also chosen by many critics and reviewers as one of their books of the year. Larkin died in December 1985." "Further Requirements gathers together many other interviews, broadcasts, statements and reviews. Some of them date from the period after he had chosen the contents of Required Writing, others come from obscure publications, including some early pieces. Taken all together this collection of fugitive or unreprinted material fills in a consistent but sometimes unexpected portrait of Philip Larkin: mordant, modest, intolerant, generous, but always himself. It will give great pleasure to all admirers of his work."--Jacket
