The most cherished of poets, Philip Larkin is a writer with an unrivalled ability to touch readers with his evocations of English life. The Whitsun Weddings, his first volume with Faber and Faber, was published in 1964. This Faber Modern Classics edition includes a foreword by Alan Johnson MP.

'Larkin, with his (in the best sense) provincial eye, and his unparalleled ear, is the supreme writer of post-war England.' Telegraph
'Larkin's originality is palpable . . . Who else uses an essentially conversational idiom to achieve such a variety of emotional effects? Who else takes us, and takes us so often, from sunlit levity to mellifluous gloom? And let it be emphasised that Larkin is never 'depressing'.' Martin Amis

Review:

Philip Larkin's finest collection of poems. ... The Whitsun Weddings collection includes some of Larkin's greatest poems: Dockery and Son, Faith Healing, Reference Back, Love Songs in Age, An Arundel Tomb and MCMXIV among them. But the title poem is its crowning glory., Daily Telegraph

One of the best poems of our time., Times Literary Supplement

From the Publisher:

We are pleased to announce the publication of eleven more titles into the new typographic look. The specifications for the books are high -beautifully produced, they all have flaps and are sewn and printed in Italy. The latest batch represents some of the core titles of the backlist (Philip Larkin's Collected Poems, Ted Hughes's New Selected Poems, James Joyce's Poems and Shorter Writings) along with key, single volumes that should be part of any poetry lover's library (and whose reissue, in the form in which they were first published, will give a whole new generation the pleasure of coming to the books as original readers).
