Description

The story of the life of the donor of the Oxford Chair of Poetry - Henry Birkenhead - is told here. Using original sources, this work examines his writings, which relate to his over-riding preoccupation with scholarship and the ways in which he reacted to the times in which he was born, seeing poetry as a living force preserving the ideals not only of his youth, but of a more gracious and spiritual world.
