The catalyst for 'The Less Deceived' was Philip Larkin's poem 'Deceptions' which was itself prompted by an article in 'London, Labour and the Poor' (Mayhew, Henry 1851–1861) in which a young woman recounts her experience at the hands of a man who drugged and raped her. Larkin's disturbing conclusion is that her attacker was ultimately deceiving himself more than her.


"All human emotion is headquartered in a love of self.
Without a love of self all other love is meaningless."
Dominic Rouse - The Artist's Journal, July 2013
