Allen Lane, Penguin Books, London - ISBN:0713915390, 1983. hardcover, 5¾" x 8¾", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode, reinforced hinges, etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Sir John Betjeman, Poet Laureate, is probably Britain's best-known literary figure, but in spite of his unique achievement in being that conradiction in terms, a popular poet - or, perhaps, because of it - critical opinion is still divided about him. While he has been praised by Edmund Wilson, W H Auden and Philip Larkin, other critics have dismissed him as no more than a facile light-versifier. This book defines the nature of Betjeman's achievements as poet and prose writer over five decades.
