Christopher Hitchens: ‘the consummate writer, the brilliant friend’ by Ian McEwan

I set the poem up [“The Whitsun Weddings” by Larkin] and read it, and when I reached that celebrated end, “A sense of falling, like an arrow shower/Sent out of sight, somewhere becoming rain,” Christopher murmured from his bed, “That’s so dark, so horribly dark.” I disagreed, and not out of any wish to lighten his mood. Surely, the train journey comes to an end, the recently married couples are dispatched towards their separate fates. He wouldn’t have it, and a week later, when I was back in London, we were still exchanging emails on the subject. One of his began: “Dearest Ian, Well, indeed – no rain, no gain – but it still depends on how much anthropomorphising Larkin is doing with his unconscious … I’d provisionally surmise that ‘somewhere becoming rain’ is unpromising.”

  1. If you enjoy Arthur Rackham’s illustrations of Richard Wagner’s music dramas, you might also like those of Franz Stassen and T. W. Rolleston. But what do I know since all there is to my life is vintage serials…

  2. The Hughes thing has gotta be a Mucha homage, right? Neat.
