Description
This authorised biography of the poet Kathleen Raine aims at a balanced account of the lineaments of her life rather than offering any judgement to posterity on its importance or on the subject's work. Raine, an unusual woman of contradictions, played an important role in the literary history of twentieth-century England. She was a leading Blake scholar and published works on Coleridge, Yeats and Thomas Taylor. Later in life she founded the journal Temenos with the help of Prince Charles and received the Queen's Gold Medal for poetry.
