Nothing To Be Said Analysis

Author: poem of Philip Larkin Type: poem Views: 13

Sponsored Links

For nations vague as weed,

For nomads among stones,

Small-statured cross-faced tribes

And cobble-close families

In mill-towns on dark mornings

Life is slow dying.

So are their separate ways

Of building, benediction,

Measuring love and money

Ways of slow dying.

The day spent hunting pig

Or holding a garden-party,

Hours giving evidence

Or birth, advance

On death equally slowly.

And saying so to some

Means nothing; others it leaves

Nothing to be said.

.: :.

The separate modes of life of these different kinds of people and different groups of people indicate different ways of slow dying. Things are slowly moving towards their death. Larkin was obsessed with the idea and the stark reality of death.

.: :.

Larkin describes the diverse way in which people lead their lives 'hunting a pig, or holding a garden party' however we will all share the fact it will end. The last line 'nothing to be said' evokes the thought that we cannot stop death.
