The Potrayal of Death in Philip Larkin's Poetry

  1. 1. Presented by: S M Firoz Alam Exam Roll- 740
  2. 2. Introduction Death - leading constant theme in Larkin’s poetry. Larkin was so obsessed with the concept of death that he has been often called “a graveyard poet”
  3. 3. Concept of death according to Larkin  Death is unpreventable. “All streets in time are visited” (Ambulances) “No trick dispels” (Aubade)  Death- a source of fear and fright in life. “__ the dread Of dying, and being dead, Flashes afresh to hold and horrify.” (Aubade)  Death- “So permanent and blank and true”. “That lies just under all we do.” (Ambulances)
  4. 4. Concept of death according to Larkin: Continued  Death- a perpetual vehicle for our travel to eternity. “The sure extinction that we travel to And shall be lost in always. Not to be here Not to be anywhere,” (Aubade) “Brings closer what is left to come.” (Ambulances)  Death gives chances to think and calculate our life and its activities. “__ The good not done, the love not given, time Torn off unused__” (Aubade)
  5. 5. Death and Religion  Religion is “a special way of being afraid.”  “Religion used to try” “to pretend we never die.” Life after death? In fact, nothing can ensure a life hereafter.
  6. 6. Death and Rationality  Socrates’ rationality is not enough in facing the dread of death. According to Sorcates, “No rational being Can fear a thing it will not feel.” (Aubade)  Death has “ __no sight, no sound, No touch or taste or smell, nothing to think with, Nothing to love or link with.” (Aubade)
  7. 7. Death and Courage  We cannot defeat the fear of death with our courage. “Courage is no good: It means not scaring others. Being brave Lets no one off the grave.” (Aubade)  Only “realization of it rages out In furnace-fear when we are caught without People or drink.”
  8. 8. Attributes used by Larkin to Give a Picture of Death  “Unresting”;  “The anesthetic from which none come round.”  “the total emptiness”;  “__stays just on the edge of  “the sure extinction”;  “nothing more terrible, nothing more true.” vision. A small unfocused blur, a standing chill.”  “__ the solving emptiness”
  9. 9. Conclusions  Larkin has got the stereotype feeling of an agnostic(?). Death- not a gateway to heaven.  Death is the ultimate truth- our lives and activities are absurd (Albert Camus). Myth of Sisyphus? No. Our love, deeds and attitudes are immortal. “Only an attitude remains” “What will remain of us is love” (An Arundel Tomb)
