About Author: Roy Campbell

avatar
Roy Campbell (2 October 1901 – 22 April 1957) was a South African poet and satirist. He was considered by T.S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas and Edith Sitwell to have been one of the best poets of the period between the two World Wars, but his connections to right-wing ideology have impaired his reputation and any unbiased assessments of his writing. A willingness to make bitter enemies of influential literati also helped consign him to the outskirts of literature. As of 2009, his life and works—both singularly colorful—are little-known and overdue for re-examination.
