  • He was out of tune with what a younger generation of poets were writing, and railed against the shallowness and commercialisation of the modern world, from his fastness: a farmhouse surrounded by orchards in Middleton, Suffolk.
    Michael Hamburger
  • Truth, indeed, is something that is believed in completely only by persons who have never tried personally to pursue it to its fastness and grab it by the tail.Nine times out of ten, in the arts as in life, there is actually no truth to be discovered; there is only error to be exposed.What the world turns to, when it has been cured of one error, is usually simply another error, and maybe one worse than the first one.The profoundest truths of the Middle Ages are now laughed at by schoolboys. The profoundest truths of democracy will be laughed at, a few centuries hence, even by school-teachers.
    H. L. Mencken
