I read Philip Larkin a lot a lot, and now it's all online youtube has proved itself to be not just loads of funny animals and kids getting their legs cut off by walls. There is so much other good stuff like this, best bit about Down Cemetery road is not just John Betjeman and Philip Larkin smoking in Larkin's living room but the amazing BBC intro. Whole video makes Hull look a bit wank but i suppose we all knew that.
Aubade is probably the most terrifying poem ever written, hearing it read out by Philip Larkin with photos of graves just adds to it, well good.
