Passwords: C.K. Williams on George Herbert and Philip Larkin

George Herbert (1593-1633) and Philip Larkin (1922-1985) are separated not only by several hundred years, but by apparently radical differences in their characters and spiritual aspirations. Yet there are intriguing similarities in the way they found access to the sources of poetry, and the use to which they put it. C.K. Williams reads their poetry and discusses its formative aspects and visions.
