Collected poems by Philip Larkin( Book )

101 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,614 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
A girl in winter by Philip Larkin( Book )

86 editions published between 1942 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Girl in Winter is the moving and enigmatic story of Katherine LInd, a European woman in wartime England. The vicious winter weather has paralyzed the countryside; the emotions of Katherine are frozen as well, as fear and loneliness increase her sense of isolation. By splicing the story of Katherine's sunlit 16th summer in between the halves of a single winter day on which the suitor of her youth returns to her present life, Larkin illuminates the process by which we learn to decipher and accommodate the longings of the heart
Jill, a novel by Philip Larkin( Book )

51 editions published between 1926 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel is set in wartime Oxford, the city in which it was written. Protagonist John Kemp is a young man from "Huddlesford" in Lancashire, who goes up to Oxford. With great sympathy it analyses his emotions at this first experience of privileged southern life (he had never been south of Crewe). Socially awkward and inexperienced, Kemp is attracted by the reckless and dissipated life of his roommate Christopher Warner, a well-off southerner who has attended a minor public school, tellingly called "Lamprey College". The eponymous Jill is Kemp's imaginary sister, whom he invents to confound Warner. Kemp then discovers a real-life Jill called Gillian, the 15-year-old cousin of Warner's friend Elizabeth. Kemp becomes infatuated with Gillian, but his advances are thwarted by Elizabeth and rebuffed by Gillian

The north ship by Philip Larkin( Book )

71 editions published between 1945 and 2015 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philip Larkin's first volume of verse, The North Ship was originally published in August 1945, by the Fortune Press, and reissued in 1966 by Faber. The introduction, by Larkin himself, explains the circumstances of its publication and the influences which shaped its contents."--Book flap
The complete poems by Philip Larkin( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 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 poems, which often outline the circumstances that gave rise to a poem or state what 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 him as a more complex and more literary poet than many readers have suspected
