Product description

Book Description

Philip Larkin: Selected Letters presents a selection of Larkin's astonishingly frank and entertaining correspondence, whether with literary figures like Kingsley Amis and John Betjeman, or with his more intimate personal friends. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Philip Larkin was born in Coventry in 1922 and was educated at King Henry VIII School, Coventry, and St John's College, Oxford. As well as his volumes of poems, which include The Whitsun Weddings and High Windows, he wrote two novels, Jill and A Girl in Winter, and two books of collected journalism: All What Jazz: A Record Diary, and Required Writing: Miscellaneous Prose. He worked as a librarian at the University of Hull from 1955 until his death in 1985. He was the best-loved poet of his generation, and the recipient of innumerable honours, including the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry, and the WHSmith Award.

As one of Philip Larkin's chosen literary executors, Anthony Thwaite edited the Collected Poems, Selected Letters and Further Requirements. His own Collected Poems, drawing on fifty years work, was published in 2007. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
