Sunday Sessions : Philip Larkin Reading His Poetry, Audio

Sunday Sessions : Philip Larkin Reading His Poetry Audio


"The Sunday Sessions" consists of twenty-six poems, the contents of two tapes recorded by Philip Larkin in Hull in February 1980 - reportedly, each on a Sunday, after lunch with John Weeks, a sound engineer and colleague of the poet.

The tapes, which contain work from Larkin's first major collection, "The North Ship", as well as poems from his best-known collections, "The Whitsun Weddings" and "High Windows", remained 'lost' for over two decades, lying on a shelf in the garage in which they were recorded.

Since their rediscovery they have been the subject of widespread media attention, including a BBC Radio 4 Archive Hour documentary.

Their contents are here published in full for the first time.

The running time is approx 1 hour/1 disc.
