Larkin25 Lecture - Random windows conjuring a street': Larkin and the city

This lecture will consider how Larkin imagines and explores the city, with particular reference to poems set in his adopted home, Kingston upon Hull.


The Larkin25 lecture series, programmed by Larkin scholar and literary adviser to the Philip Larkin Society, Professor James Booth, offer the chance to take another look at Larkin by hearing from contemporary poets and academics as they explore different areas of his life and writings.

If Larkin25 has sparked your interest in Britain’s best loved poet, here’s your opportunity to delve deeper- and to hear from some of the UK’s finest contemporary writers and thinkers

We are delighted to welcome Sean O’Brien, ‘the most prize winning poet of his generation’, 3 times winner of the Forward Poetry Prize, and recipient of the 2007 Eliot Prize, to deliver the first in the autumn series.

Although Philip Larkin wrote in praise of rural England, he was largely a city-dweller. Sean O'Brien’s own early work has been called ‘urban pastoral’ – and his lecture will consider how Larkin imagines and explores the city, with particular reference to poems set in his adopted home, Kingston upon Hull.
