I love Larkin; if you read a poem that begins with "They fuck you up, your mum and dad," you have to read more poems by this guy. Larkin was not prolific, but "The Less Deceived" and "Whitsun Weddings" are two slim volumes worth reading. "Church Going" is one of my favorites. No, Larkin is not a believer. He goes into a church only when he is sure it is empty.
