    • POEM: The Old Fools by Philip Larkin (8/12/2005 11:14:00 AM)

      Re: last comment.
      OF COURSE he is afraid of getting old and dying! ! !
      I don't find the tone mocking, simply a truthful observation of ageing/death as he sees it.
      Larkin was not young when he wrote this, so if he does use a sterotype, which I don't think he does, he would certainly be including himself.
      The last two sections of this poem are brilliant, moving, depressing and great poetry.
