In 1988, three years after Larkin's death, this 390-page omnibus was published under a shared Faber/Marvell imprint, edited by Larkin's friend and executor, Anthony Thwaite. It aimed to include all the poems finished by Larkin as an adult, plus a selection of verses from his teens. Containing no fewer than 83 previously unpublished poems, it added greatly to what had been previously known of his work. In 2003, Thwaite published a more concise (218-page) "Collected Poems", which included only work Larkin had published in his lifetime, omitting such revealing poems as Love Again: purchasers of this volume, in order to acquire Larkin's full canon, needed to supplement it with the 2005-published extended edition of Larkin's Early Poems and Juvenilia, which is why this 1988 edition remains the favoured volume of his lifetime's work.

Review:

"More often than any other English poet since the war, Larkin gave us lines that it is unlikely we'll be able to forget." --Ian Hamilton, "The Times "(London)
"Larkin is resolute, forthright, witty, and gloomy. This is the man who famously said that deprivation was for him what daffodils were for Wordsworth. Yet surely the results of this life, in the shape of his poems, are gifts, not deprivations." --Donald Hall, "The New Criterion"
