AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Lisa Gorton looks at the friendship between poets Chris Wallace-Crabbe, R. A. Simpson, Vincent Buckley, Laurence Collinson, Alexander Craig, Max Dunn, Noel Macainsh and David Martin, who together published the anthology of poetry Eight by Eight (1963). She suggests ' the idea that a group of poets, insofar as they constituted one another's audience, could influence that most defining and hard-to-define aspect of any poem - its tone of voice.' (16)


  • This criticism is based on Gorton's interview with Chris Wallace-Crabbe and publishes for the first time Wallace-Crabbes' poem for R. A. Simpson, 'The Executor's Tale'.

    Gorton's interview with Chris Wallace-Crabbe and 'The Executor's Tale' are separately indexed.
