Sir John Betjeman CBE (28 August 1906 - 19 May 1984) was an English poet, writer and broadcaster who described himself in Who's Who as a 'poet and hack'. He was born to a middle-class family in Edwardian London. Although he claimed he failed his degree at Oxford University, his early ability in writing poetry and interest in architecture supported him throughout his life. Starting his career as a journalist, he ended it as British Poet Laureate and a much-loved figure on British television. Despite being a prolific poet, Betjeman remains best known for just a single poem, Slough, written in 1937 about the community outside London which typified the transformation of the rural landscape wrought by industrialisation. -- Wikipedia.

About this Item: FABER FABER, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Main. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. My own interest started in seeking out what was old. When the guide told me that this was the bed in which Queen Elizabeth slept, I believed him. When owners of country cottages in Suffolk told me their cottage was a thousand years old, I believed them too. I thought that this or that church was the smallest in England, and that secret passages ran under ruined monasteries, so that monks could get to the nearest convent without being seen. The older anything was the lovelier I thought it. Most famous for his poetry, John Betjeman was also passionate about architecture, preferring all centuries to my own . In his first prose work, Ghastly Good Taste (1933), he vigorously defends his love of Victorian and Edwardian architecture, considered deeply unfashionable at the time. With the savage humor of his famous satire Slough , he attacks notions of Modernism and (at the other extreme) unthinking antiquarianism. Seller Inventory # LIE9780571245680

About this Item: Murray, 1937. First edition. Original black cloth with elaborate gilt design in stylish pictorial dustwrapper designed by E. McKnight Kauffer. All edges gilt. Inscribed by Betjeman to Gilbert Harding on the half title, "Inscribed for Gilbert H by John Betjeman" A near fine copy in a very good dustwrapper indeed which shows a touch of tanning to the spine and a little wear to the spine ends. Gilbert Harding (1907-1960), journalist and television broadcaster who made a hit with his irascibility and sharpness. Harding and Betjeman appeared together on such programmes as 'What's My Line?' and 'Who Said That?'. According to Candida Lycett Green (John Betjeman Letters Vol II, p.44), "They got on like a house on fire." Following a television appearance together, Betjeman wrote in a letter to Harding, "you must surely know and that is that you are a GENIUS. You may not know it but you have a turn of phrase that is equal to that of Thomas Gray and Gibbon whom you quoted." Continual Dew is Betjeman's second book of verse, containing perhaps his most famous poem 'Slough', as well as "The Arrest of Oscar Wilde at Cadogan Hotel" and "The Wykehamist".
