On Philip Larkin's death in 1985, Ian Hamilton wrote in The (London) Times: "More often than any other Engllish poet since the war, Larkin gave us lines that it is unlikely we'll be able to forget." Though widely appreciated and well known in America, most of Larkin's poetry has been unavailable in the United State for many years. With this volume, all of his published poetry is brought together: The North Ship (1945), the pamphlet of XX Poems (1953), The Less Deceived (1955), The Whitsun Weddings (1964), and his final book, High Windows (1974).
