Oxford Graduate, librarian and Jazz critic Larkin was chosen, almost two decades after his death in 1985, as Britain’s best-loved poet of the previous 50 years, and in 2008 The Times named him Britain’s greatest post-war writer. This poem, which deals with the fear of death and the sense of mortality, is among his better-known works.
