Description

In this episode I read Larkin's most beloved poem, "Church Going." We talk a bit about how Larkin's rather pathetic, pervy character shouldn't diminish the importance or relevance of his work. We then work through this multi-layered piece to explore, at least partially, the theme, which is how the sacred, or numinous, is still a vital need for even those who have no belief in religion.

Enjoy.
