Description
Betjeman was the best-loved English poet since Tennyson and became an institution -- a 'teddy bear to the nation'. This book is a distillation of Hillier's authorised three-volume life.
Hillier's enthralling, many-voiced biography is an awesome achievement. But it is no more than Betjeman's due. JOHN CAREY
