Jill

´It will, I hope, still qualify for the indulgence traditionally extended to juvenilia,´ wrote Philip Larkin, almost twenty years after the publication of his first novel. But Jill, with its exact evocation of place - Oxford in 1940 - and astute insight into character, emotions and social nuance, requires no such indulgence. It is a classic of its time, and shows many of the qualities that were later to distinguish Larkin´s great, mature poetry.

Jill is, in a sense, a kind of cryptic manifesto. It is a novel about writing, about discovering a literary personality, and about the sorts of consolation that art can provide.´ Andrew Motion

As well as his volumes of poems, which include The Whitsun Weddings and High Windows, he wrote two novels, Jilland A Girl in Winter, and two books of collected journalism: All What Jazz: A Record Diary, and Required Writing: Miscellaneous Prose. He worked as a librarian at the University of Hull from 1955 until his death in 1985. He was the best-loved poet of his generation, and the recipient of innumerable honours, including the Queen´s Gold Medal for Poetry, and the WHSmith Award.
