Comparing Larkin and Gunn

Love's Poetry: Love's Poetry
  • By Siddiqui T
Product Description


"Larkin and Gunn: Love & Sex" is a collection of poems by two prominent poets, Philip Larkin and Thom Gunn, that explores the complexities of love and sexuality.

Philip Larkin, one of the most celebrated poets of the 20th century, is known for his stark, sometimes bleak, yet poignant portrayals of modern life. His contributions to "Love & Sex" include poems such as "Annus Mirabilis," "Sunny Prestatyn," and "Talking in Bed," which examine the vulnerability and fragility of relationships, as well as the transient nature of love and sex.

Thom Gunn, another influential poet of the same era, is known for his exploration of gay identity and desire in his work. His contributions to "Love & Sex" include poems such as "The Hug," "Tamer and Hawk," and "Touch," which delve into the complexities of sexuality, desire, and the human experience.

Together, Larkin and Gunn's poems in "Love & Sex" offer a multifaceted examination of the joys, sorrows, and complexities of human relationships, from the early stages of infatuation to the enduring bonds of long-term commitment. The collection is a powerful testament to the enduring relevance of poetry as a means of exploring the human condition.

Philip Larkin is famous for writing about the ups and downs of modern relationships. Some of his poems in this book talk about how delicate and short-lived love can be. Thom Gunn, on the other hand, writes a lot about what it's like to be gay and the deep feelings of love and desire that come with it.

Together, their poems in this book show all the different feelings that come with love, from the exciting beginnings to the deep connections that last a long time. This book proves that poetry is still a great way to explore our feelings and experiences.
