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.
John Osborne is Director of American Studies at the University of Hull, UK. He was co-founder and first Secretary of the Philip Larkin Society. The present volume builds upon his Larkin, Ideology and Critical Violence, which was nominated one of the Books of the Year for 2010 by The New Statesman.
