Biography

English poet and critic, who made his reputation in the 1930s with poems expressing the politically conscience-stricken, leftist "new writing" of that period. He was later known less for his poetry than for his perceptive criticism and for his editorial association with the influential reviews Horizon (1940-41) and Encounter (1953-67). - Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literaturemore
