Andries Bezuidenhout. Larkin: Selected, Collected en Complete

“A ‘Complete Poems’ is a death certificate and memorial combined. After the Selected and the Collected, the Complete marks the poet’s official demise and at the same time erects a carven monument designed to outlast the ages.”

Hoe’s daai vir die eerste sin van ʼn boekresensie? Dit kom uit John Banville se resensie van ‘n nuwe versameling Philip Larkin-gedigte deur Archie Burnett. Die uitvoerige en onderhoudende resensie is Woensdag in die Guardian gepubliseer. Ek hou ook hiérvan:

“Larkin himself would have made merciless fun of it, but the poet, and the librarian, in him would have been immensely pleased and proud.”
