I was listening to Larkin reading his poems after reading this insightful article:
A central sadness in Larkin is that while his belief in these institutions has gone, the gaps they were meant to fill remain. For Larkin, atheism doesn’t replace the comforts of religion, nor does a skepticism toward love cure the loneliness of its alternative.

It’s a lovely quote. I’m going to read the article now.
Thanks for posting.
