Synopsis: When Philip Larkin's "letters" were published in 1992, the poet's enemies seized on the new disclosures with a frenzy unseen since the McCarthy era. What had previously been regarded only as potential inclination hinted at in his poems—misogyny and xenophobia in particular—were now indisputable facts, and since then Larkin's reputation as a poet has been tarnished by his image as a human being. Richard Bradford's acclaimed biography, now in paperback for the first time, reveals that Larkin treated his prejudices and peculiarities with detached circumspection. Sometimes he shared them, self-mockingly, self-destructively, with his closest friends. He divided up his life so that some people knew him well but none completely, and it was only in his poems that the parts began to resemble the whole.

About the Author: Richard Bradford is professor of English at the University of Ulster. He previously taught at the universities of Oxford, Wales, and Trinity College, Dublin. He is the author of 12 books on a variety of subjects, including two critical monographs of Kingsley Amis.
