Red Guitar No. 2: Larkin’s Eggs
Red Guitar, a regular column by poet and critic Ron Smith, returns with “Larkin’s Eggs,” a discussion beginning with the “that beautiful, horrific September morning more than five years ago” and leading to “effectively the last line of [Philip] Larkin’s last poem.” Smith, a frequent Blackbird contributor, is the author of the poetry collections Running Again in Hollywood Cemetery (University of Florida Presses, 1988) and Moon Road (forthcoming from Louisiana State University Press).
