(1912-1973) UK author best known for his distinguished and melancholy poetry, which was assembled in Collected Poems (1975). The Rhubarb Tree (1937), with Stephen Tait, is one of several 1930s novels predicting a Near Future fascist government in the UK (see Dystopia). Jules Verne (1940) is a fluent study, free of the literary condescension typical of early critical studies of Jules Verne. [JC]
