Summary

Larkin’s final collection of poems shows, as does all his best work, his ability to adapt contemporary speech rhythms and everyday vocabulary to subtle metrical patterns and poetic forms. Many of the poems in the collection, which includes some of his best-known pieces (‘The Old Fools’, ‘This Be the Verse’, ‘The Explosion’, and the title poem) show the preoccupation with death and transience that is so typical of the poet.

This beautifully designed edition forms part of a series of ten titles celebrating Faber’s publishing over the decades.
