Seedbed of Poets

(26 February 1913 - 27 October 1991)
George Granville Barker was raised by his Irish mother and English father in Battersea, London. He left school at 14 and pursued several odd jobs before settling on a career in writing.
His first publications, the novel Alanna Autumnal and Thirty Preliminary Poems appeared in 1933. He taught English literature in Japan, the United States, and England from 1939 to 1974.
Two of his important long poems are Calamiterror (1937), which was inspired by the Spanish Civil War, and The True Confession of George Barker (1950). Barker’s Collected Poems was published in 1987.
