Format: Paperback
The cloud of unknowing/Never far away/From the fog of ignorance

This is delicious. It probably represents the final flowering of a not specially distinguished career. (Thwaite is best known as Larkin's biographer and his editor before the latest Complete.) These poems, some sixty in total, have been ripened over nearly ten years, and it shows. Only the last few 'spiritual' ones, ushered in by an elegy for his cat Kettle, represent a falling-off so far as I am concerned. (This old curmudgeon doesn't hold with the spirit.) I look forward to the anthology of the over-seventies (Fleur Adcock, Alan Brownjohn, Clive James, Lotte Kramer (now 'on the Underground'!), the late Peter Porter) that is surely in prospect as we speak
