Contemporary analysis of Ecocriticism perspectives in works of Philip Larkin


Kruttika Pathak


One could argue that Larkin's poetry indirectly engages with environmental themes through his contemplation of mortality, transience, and the passage of time. By acknowledging the finiteness of human existence, Larkin implicitly acknowledges the interconnectedness of human life with the natural world and the implications of our actions on the environment. While Larkin's poetry may not overtly advocate for environmental activism or address ecological concerns in the way that ecocritical writers typically do, his work can still be examined from an ecocritical perspective. By analyzing his portrayal of nature, the human-nature relationship, and the implicit connections between human existence and the environment, readers can find avenues to explore ecological themes within Larkin's poetry.
