‘Many poets make us smile; how many poets make us laugh – or, in that curious phrase, “laugh out loud” (as if there’s another way of doing it)? Who else uses an essentially conversational idiom to achieve such a variety of emotional effects? Who else takes us, and takes us so often, from sunlit levity to mellifluous gloom?… Larkin, often, is more than memorable: he is instantly unforgettable.’ – Martin Amis
