THE ART OF AN ANTI-ROMANTIC AND AN ANTI-MODERNIST: LARKIN ABOUT MODERN REALITY / BİR ANTİ-ROMANTİK VE ANTİ-MODERNİSTİN SANATI: LARKİN’İN MODERN GERÇEKLİK ÜZERİNE DÜŞÜNCELERİ

In the early 1950s a group of young English poets formed a literary circle called The Movement, as a correspondent to Angry Young Man in theatre. Philip Larkin is a perfect representative of the Movement and post-war generation. He interpreted modern reality from his own perspective with a realistic, simple, clear, colloquial style that discarded both Romanticism and Modernism. He was the follower of a clearly English line, with provincialism in theme, traditionalism in form, blunt representations of modern reality, refusal of idealization of the self or nature, and a kind of simplicity, and accessibility. Thus in this paper Larkin’s anti-romantic and anti-modernist style of poetry will be discussed with his involvement of the Movement, and analyzed through several of his poems.
