When Philip Larkin’s High Windows first appeared, Kingsley Amis spoke for a large and loyal readership when he wrote: ‘Larkin’s admirers need only be told that he is as good as ever here, if not slightly better.’
Like Betjeman and Hardy, Larkin is a poet who can move a large audience – without betraying the highest artistic standards.
The poems in High Windows illustrate Larkin’s unrivalled ability to bring lyrical expression to ordinary, urban lives. It is a gift that makes him one of the most truly popular of the twentieth century’s poets.
