Blake Morrison Quotes in When Did You Last See Your Father? (2007)
Blake Morrison Quotes:
Blake Morrison: [making a public speech] You know, my dad always used to say that being a poet is all well and good but it's no way to make a living.
Arthur Morrison: Too true.
Blake Morrison: And when did you last see your father? Was it when they burned the coffin? Put the lid on? When he exhaled his last breath? When he sat up and said something? When he last recognized you? When he last smiled? When did you last see your father? The last time he was healthy, active? The last time he had an argument about something? Those weeks in which we tried to say goodbye were like a series of depletion's. Each day I thought 'he can't get less like himself than this.' Yet each day he did. So I've been trying to recall the last time I actually saw him. The last time he was unmistakeably... there. In the fullness of being, I dunno... him.
Blake Morrison: And at the risk of getting sentimental I'd just like to say a quick thanks to my wife, Kathy, not only for her encouragement and support but also because she especificly asked me to mention her.
