Continuing To Live Analysis

Author: poem of Philip Larkin Type: poem Views: 3

Sponsored Links

Continuing to live -- that is, repeat

A habit formed to get necessaries --

Is nearly always losing, or going without.

      It varies.

This loss of interest, hair, and enterprise --

Ah, if the game were poker, yes,

You might discard them, draw a full house!

      But it's chess.

And once you have walked the length of your mind, what

You command is clear as a lading-list.

Anything else must not, for you, be thought

      To exist.

And what's the profit? Only that, in time,

We half-identify the blind impress

All our behavings bear, may trace it home.

      But to confess,

On that green evening when our death begins,

Just what it was, is hardly satisfying,

Since it applied only to one man once,

      And that one dying.

.: :.

Im analysing this in english and i am a bit confused as to what this poem is about. In my opinion, I believe that Larkin is discussing how we sometimes take things for granted and we simply wish our life away. Additionally, I also thought that Larkin may have suggested that a man\'s love is greater than a man\'s \"built in love\" and again, we don\'t understand the true meaning of life & love. Im a bit uncertain whether this is correct or not, anyone want to help me out!
