I reread all of Larkin and Hardy's selected just recently. Loved Larkin -- he was surely a great poet. Din't care for Hardy, except for "Drummer Hodge," "1967" and maybe 2 others.

I have thought that for years about WCW and Hardy. As for Larkin
I am thinking about re-reading him as he is occupying more of
my imaginative life nowadays.
And I must report that my liver was clear at the hospital
this morning so I am back on the drink.
