Philip Larkin and His Audiences PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Philip Larkin and His Audiences free pdf Philip Larkin can consistently be found at the top of lists of England's best or favourite poet, yet he is widely regarded as a misanthropic, provincial recluse. Philip Larkin and his Audiences takes as its starting point the apparent disconnection between the public love for Larkin and the critical revulsion for what he has come to stand for. By carefully considering poems from Larkin's earliest publications through his last great work, 'Aubade', this volume argues that the most condemning approaches to Larkin misinterpret and oversimplify his literary game-playing and that his famously misanthropic nature is merely one insubstantial facet of a poet whose concern for audience is writ large in his poems and prose. This book argues against Larkin as either a simple or anti-social poet and instead presents evidence for his use of multiple voices, complex speakers, and constant attention to the desires of his readers.
