Judith Robertson's curator insight, April 13, 2013 6:11 PM

I am a sucker for these whimsical, sometimes intimate, and always rambling Paris Review interviews, and in this one, Poet Philip Larkin reveals glimpses of his past, when he was writing full steam, and his present life as a university librarian.  He talks about writers and teaching, and I love what he has to say about reading and responding to students' work.

 

"The academic world has worked all right for me, but then, I’m not a teacher. I couldn’t be. I should think that chewing over other people’s work, writing I mean, must be terribly stultifying. Quite sickens you with the whole business of literature. But then, I haven’t got that kind of mind, conceptual or ratiocinative or whatever it is. It would be death to me to have to think about literature as such, to say why one poem was “better” than another, and so on."
