A collection, which includes some of Larkin's best-known pieces ( The Old Fools, This Be the Verse, The Explosion, and the title poem) showing the preoccupation with death and transience that is so typical of the poet.

Synopsis

High Windows by Philip Larkin

Larkin's final collection of poems shows, as does all his best work, his ability to adapt contemporary speech rhythms and everyday vocabulary to subtle metrical patterns and poetic forms. Rather than words comes the thought of high windows: The sun-comprehending glass, And beyond it, the deep blue air, that shows Nothing, and is nowhere, and is endless. - from High Windows .
