James Booth has written extensively on Philip Larkin. Booth has recently retired from the Department of English at the University of Hull, where he had been Larkins colleague for seventeen years.The distinction between Booths and Andrew Motions biographies is, in Booths own words:His (Motions) biography is a magnificent achievement, but he is not on Larkins wavelength when it comes to humour.However, despite praising Motions achievement in this regard, Booth adds that:I think Motion took Larkin too much at his own word. When Larkin said he was a sour brute who didnt treat his mother well, he believed him.

In fact, Larkin wrote two letters to his mother every week for 40-odd years.Booths writing is defined by his admiration for one of Britains most beloved poets of the twentieth-century:I have always loved his poetry and love is the right word
