bookshelves: english-classic-lit, poetry
Recommended to Wayne by: Previous Larkin poems
Recommended for: one and all
Read from September 14, 2011 to March 08, 2012 , read count: once, so far!!

This cost me a mere 50 cents!!!!
And I know it will contain an absolute wealth
of plain-speaking insight on the daily grind,
done with irony, wit and empathy.
Larkin' with Larkin!!!!

Like ALL poetry books one knows one has never done with it, as the text and thought is usually so tightly packed with allusions, resonances and plain info as well as skills of style that it is a Continual Feast on so many levels.And so many returns (one just hopes one will have life and time!!) will hopefully be in store.
I didn't find these poems as easily decipherable as I had thought I would.So have already read each poem a few times,silently , out loud trying to discover, translate etc.etc.
No Regrets though!!!!
