This paper aims to prove the nature of Larkin`s poetic view of sexuality. Larkin`s images on women produce a real girl in a real place rather than poetic myth or popular folklore. In his poem, the `bosomy English girl rose`, and the `friend in specs` replace Helen of Tory and Dante`s Beatrice. His view of sexuality is very different from that of his great twentieth-century predecessors, Yeats and Eliot. Larkin is constantly encountering difficulties in his relations with girls. Women in his poems, such as "Lines on a Young Lady`s Photograph Album," "Sunny Prestatyn," "Wild Oats," and "Love Again," are enshrined in fiction or in photographs. This photography becomes a metaphor for not being able to communicate with or touch a woman. This photographic image of woman is violent in part because she is unattainable in the flesh, and men resent her attempts to use sex as power. For Larkin, sexual intercourse requires not only a change in the social system, but creates a complicated situation. As he admires the sexual revolution in "Annus Mirabilis," he perceives the advantages of free sex. But sex is something that he cannot enjoy in a normal way, and he mocks himself for his own inadequacy. Thus, he has a strong belief that sex and women are separated from each other in his mind, and he evokes the demanding, and biological nature of male sexual desire. This proves to be a problematic issue in his poetry. In "Deceptions" and "Dry-Point," sex is violent and miserably disillusioning, and men are too selfish as shown in "Wild Oats" and "Self`s the Man." In "Love Again," love means clearly an illness, a sickness and is unable to produce pleasure. The beautiful woman in "Sunny Prestatyn" was raped by men as the poem "Deception" suggests. So women in his poetry are disappointed at being loved or unloved, and suffer from bearing the burden of expressing this disappointment and bitterness. Through the disappointment of sex, Larkin suggests that man`s desire is transcended by sorrow at the triumph of sordid reality over beautiful dream, and a good poem about failure is a success.
