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 life-time. Collected Poems brings together all of his books — The North Ship. The Less Deceived, The Whitsun Weddings, and High Windows — and also his uncollected poems from 1940 to 1984. This new edition reflects Larkins own ordering for his poems and is the first to present the body of his work with the organization he preferred. The new Collected Poems is an authoritative compendium and an indispensable contribution to the legacy of an icon of twentieth-century poetry.
This is the complete collection of Larkins available poetry, based on the carefully preserved and dated notebooks and typescripts left by the poet.
