Course Description

Larkin has been described as the greatest, if gloomy, post-war poet, as well as a novelist, librarian and jazz critic. Deprivation for him was, he said, what daffodils were for Wordsworth. This course attempts to refocus Larkin, as a humane observer of human emotion. His poetry is full of pinpoint accuracy in detailing emotional crisis, tenderness and startling and poignant observations. His truths are troubling ones, beautifully revealed. This course will consider Larkin's poetry, the complicated man, and discover why the poetry touches readers so deeply.
