Mr Bleaney

July 2001

Nomination: Mr Bleaney [May 1955. From The Whitsun Weddings]

I am currently studying Philip Larkin’s Whitsun Weddings as part of my A-Level English Literature course, I have become rather attached to “Mr. Bleaney”, the mystery and ambience which surrounds this character fascinates me, how such a grey and apathetic life can have such an affect on a household, and possess an almost immortal quality as his presence is still felt by the next tenant.
