John Heath-Stubbs was one of the defining poets of his age, a legendary performer (being blind, he recited even his major narrative poems from memory). This new selection by the young poet and critic John Clegg essentialises an abundant poet and celebrates his work in the centenary of his birth.
John Heath-Stubbs was born in 1918 and educated at Queens College, Oxford. A critic, anthologist and translator as well as a poet, he has received the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry and the prestigious St Augustine Cross. Carcanet published seven previous collections by Heath-Stubbs, as well as a "Collected and Selected Poems" and a collection of his literary essays. In 1988 he was awarded the OBE. His poetry was published by Carcanet for almost thirty years. He died in London on 25th December 2006.
