John Betjeman Collected Poems Reviews


A true poet who extends experience * Margaret Lane *
John Betjeman has succeeded . . . in narrowing the gulf between poetry and the public . . . he has established a personal regency over all contemporary taste * The Times *
It would be difficult - in my opinion impossible - to point to a contemporary poet of greater originality or more genuine depth of feeling * Anthony Powell *
