Nice post on Hull's most famous son, Philip Larkin, over at 3 Quarks Daily, from Australian poet Peter Nicholson:


For Gerard Manley Hopkins there was Heaven-haven, when a nun takes the veil, and perhaps a poet-priest seeks refuge, but for Philip Larkin there is no heaven. There is Hull, and that is where Larkin, largely free of metropolitan London’s seductions, finds his poetry and his poetics.
