Description
A treasure-trove of 81 ‘new’ poems by the much-loved English poet John Betjeman (1906-84): by turns affecting, amusing and eccentric; written from c.1924-83 but all missing from the ‘Collected Poems’. Gathering previously forgotten, unpublished and lesser-known poems - some originally printed in small-circulation journals and magazines - an expertly curated collection explores Betjeman’s early writings of the 1920s and ‘30s as well as his mature verse. Includes 'Harvest Bells', c.1927-32, invoking the bells of St Lawrence Church, Bourton-on-the-Hill, and 'My Landlady's Dog', 1978. Witty, personal, charming and surprising: the poems reflect tireless archival research, from Austin, Texas, to Christ Church, Oxford. Includes a section noting dates for each poem.
