I contend that this is greatest poem of the 20th century. Along with Wodehouse, Amis Snr. Beautiful observations abound: shadows growing long under a setting sun, the pastoral giving way slowly to the urban, the performance theatre that is a wedding day.
I am transported home every time I think of them. Or could point it out on a map.

But there is an Englishness captured in this poem that is overlooked today in this relentlessly cosmopolitan world. When he writes bitterly of the time wasted in the company of women, his criticisms are ultimately of himself. Is it life-affirming or fatalist? Christopher Hitchens, in his final days, discussed these words from his hospital bed with his friend Ian McKewan.

The Whitsun Weddings - Philip Larkins
I thought of London spread out in the sun, Its postal districts packed like squares of wheat:. There we were aimed.

We slowed again, And as the tightened brakes took hold, there swelled A sense of falling, like an arrow-shower Sent out of sight, somewhere becoming rain. Each word of his poems and prose works is a protest against romance and increased emotionality. Anyway, the author was against poetry singing of romantic love, because he considered that style as hypocritical and therefore, emotionally onerous for a reader. The main themes of his works are loneliness, losses, as well as discrimination on the various grounds.
