Collected poems by Philip Larkin ( Book )
65 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,121 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, 1960-1995 by Anthony Thwaite ( Book )
11 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 341 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
Further requirements : interviews, broadcasts, statements and book reviews, 1952-85 by Philip Larkin ( Book )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 337 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."--BOOK JACKET
