I smell something fishy. And it isn't the Hull dockside.

Ahh, Matt. You beat me to it...

I'm glad the gag went with "The Whitsun Weddings." Using "This Be the Verse" would have been too preposterous (though I love the idea of Old Norse parents lambasting their lineage...).

Aubade might have been plagiarized from Old Norse, until the telephones and postmen.

The rhyme scheme in Sunny Prestatyn is brilliant. It's the first time I've encountered that poem. Thanks, James, for linking to it.

I think Hart Crane did much worse, though I respect him much more than Larkin poetically. I'm inclined to think that Larkin set English poetry back about 80 years.
