    Are you sure this is Philip Larkin’s voice ?
    It doesn’t sound like him to me. I think it’s actor Tom Courtenay.
    Still, a beautiful poem (whoever’s reading it).

  2. Rick Says:

    Hah! You’re right. I didn’t read the liner notes at YouTube on this.
    It is still a wonderful reading, huh?

  3. James Says:

    I agree. Larkin’s own reading is superb,as you would expect, but this is
    also excellent. It must be difficult to avoid sounding like an imitation of
    such a well-known voice, and I think he does it well.
