    • POEM: High Windows by Philip Larkin (2/19/2007 3:29:00 PM)

      The power of this poem lies in the journey Larkin makes from the suffocating baseness of the opening stanza to the freedom of the final stanza, it is almost as if the poet breathes in a large gulp of oxygen after struggling with his breathing. Larkin turns our usual perceptions of life and death on their heads. It is life that becomes stifling in this poem and death that is releasing.

    • POEM: High Windows by Philip Larkin (2/18/2007 11:59:00 AM)

      Only Larkin could make eating an awful pie at Sheffield railway station take on a metaphysical significance. Thats what makes his poetry so immediate and humane for me. Brilliant.
