Larkin is like Fritos: you can read a book of his poems but nobody can read just one. Such a tonic!

New, impressive biography out by James Booth. Reviewed in WSJ,11/28/14. Maybe Dan Reynolds should read.

You show some promise, but the archaic language lets you down. Try to read some good contemporary poets and expand your thoughts without the restriction of form.

This Be The Verse They fuck you up, your mum and dad. They may not mean to, but they do. They fill you with the faults they had And add some extra, just for you. But they were fucked up in their turn By fools in old-style hats and coats, Who half the time were soppy-stern And half at one another's throats. Man hands on misery to man. It deepens like a coastal shelf. Get out as early as you can, And don't have any kids yourself. Philip Larkin This Be The Children’s Verse They suss you out, your girls and boys. You may not know it, but they do. They find out all your faults and foibles Because they concentrate on you. Their eyes and ears are sharp, perceptive, Slicing through your best disguise. And if you grit your teeth and take it, Their advice might make you wise. They cannot cure your old compulsions; They will not stroke away the aches That plague your heart and grieve your bones But they can learn from your mistakes. This Be The Grandparents’ Verse They tuck you up, your mum and dad. They may not want to, but they do. They give you games and stories they had And make up new ones, just for you. And they were tucked up in their turn By parent figures in the past, Who helped them, growing up, to learn That pain and misery end at last. Your kids can comfort smaller kids. And get some pleasure from this chore. The fretful baby’s drooping eyelids Move our hearts to ask for more. Robert Crick (2008)

How come Larkin's poem, This Be the Verse, is not in the poem list?
