Thomas Hardy and Philip Larkin, two of the best-loved poets in English literature, complement each other beautifully. For many years, revered as a novelist only, Hardy's poetry is now highly regarded. His present reputation owes much to Larkin's advocacy. Both writers were melancholic, even misogynistic and yet produced some of the most heart-stopping love poetry of all time. They were both extremely prolific, which makes selecting an anthology difficult. However, you will study the two poets' verses on relationships, nature, war, loss, religious suffering, death and everything in between.
