The Importance Of Elsewhere Analysis

Author: poem of Philip Larkin Type: poem Views: 5

Sponsored Links

Lonely in Ireland, since it was not home,

Strangeness made sense. The salt rebuff of speech,

Insisting so on difference, made me welcome:

Once that was recognised, we were in touch

Their draughty streets, end-on to hills, the faint

Archaic smell of dockland, like a stable,

The herring-hawker's cry, dwindling, went

To prove me separate, not unworkable.

Living in England has no such excuse:

These are my customs and establishments

It would be much more serious to refuse.

Here no elsewhere underwrites my existence.

.: :.

The speaker feels out of place and lonely in Ireland, yet this is excusable as he is a visitor there. He has no such excuses for feeling an outsider in England as it is his native land; therefore the feeling of isolation is almost greater.

.: :.

The speaker feels lonely and strange in a place that is not his home. He becomes content with the idea that he will settle soon and that he will one day feel a part of Ireland
