About this book

The first critical monograph to benefit from the textual rigour of Archie Burnett's landmark edition of The Complete Poems (2012), Radical Larkin celebrates Larkin's technical genius by offering seven in-depth analyses of the stylistic strategies he used to create eleven of his most famous poems.
