Philip Larkin

Which is not to say (he adds soberly, a day later) that there’s also much of Betjeman that I found excruciatingly English in his bicycling to churches (very Larkin-ish) and lots of prose about the good old days before motor cars ruined Oxford. Some of that donn-ish stuff I didn’t like, but what I meant to say was that I was surprised that there was so much I liked.
