(1912-1973) UK poet, playwright and 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 Scientific Romances predicting a Near Future fascist government in the UK (see Dystopia; Hitler Wins), though in exaggeratedly comic terms, with the Nazi "Sons of Empire" bedecked in red, white, and blue shirts. Jules Verne (1940) is a fluent study, free of the literary condescension typical of early critical studies of Jules Verne. [JC]
