"Man hands on misery to man"
In this week's episode of The Literary Coven, Lily and Courtney get deep and personal as they discuss Philip Larkin's poem "This Be The Verse". This relatable poem illustrates the darker side of the parent-child relationship. As children, we pick up our parents' emotional baggage and toxic traits/behaviors and make them our own. Then, when we are parents, we do the same to our children. It's an endless, fucked up cycle. Listen along as these giggly gals discuss Larkin's life, the poem's major themes, and their personal feelings about the poem and its overall message.
