About the Book

Nothing seemed to escape the eyes of Philip Larkin, a contemporary English poet who achieved acclaim on the strength of a small body of work. While lyrically exploring the human experience, Larkin’s candid perceptions were enlivened by his acute power of observation—a unique literary talent that prompted his recognition as England’s other Poet Laureate.

In a fascinating quiz book that will appeal to both Larkin scholars and lovers of poetry and literature, retired English professor M. R. Sethi shares more than six hundred questions (with answers) that offer an opportunity to test knowledge regarding the life and works of the famous poet. Scholars and others will be tested on Larkin’s physical shortcomings, his first jobs, what he wore while mowing the lawn, why he once threatened to jump out a window, who was not one of his friends at Oxford, and much more that includes detailed questions regarding many of his poems.

So You Think You Know Philip Larkin? is a volume of questions and answers shared to test the knowledge of both scholars and poetry and literature aficionados about a famous, contemporary poet.
