9780719564437: John Betjeman: The Biography

This biography takes the reader from Betjeman's troubled childhood in north London, through his blossoming at Oxford; a gay fling with W. H. Auden; a clandestine marriage to a field marshal's daughter; pranks as a film critic; wartime service and probable espionage in Ireland, to the glory days of his later years when his Collected Poems became a runaway bestseller. This book is a distillation of Bevis Hillier's three-volume biography, authorized by Betjeman himself.

Book Description Book Condition: New. Betjeman was the best-loved English poet since Tennyson and became an institution -- a 'teddy bear to the nation'. This book is a distillation of Hillier's authorised three-volume life. Hillier's enthralling, many-voiced biography is an awesome achievement. But it is no more than Betjeman's due. JOHN CAREY.
