Format: Paperback
Laurence Green sets out to put the British poetry world to right regarding one of its finest ever poets .Charles Causley who spans all manner of poetry from rhyme to intricate clever verse whilst never leaving the love of his subject beyond doubt
He is readable and enjoyable by all of us most certainly and unlike some poets it is possible to understand what he has to say right away because he lived fully the life he writes about.
Undoubtedly he is the poet laurite that we never had and a poetical craftsman.
We are all of us recognizable in his characters
The book is a must for poetry fans and for libraries and for anyone who likes Devon and Cornwall
Green writes in an easy come along with me witty style that in a way hides the hundreds of hours put into the book by way of research all of which makes the biography of a simple yet great poet and man so very easy to read as you melt in a way into a life spent apart from his wartime navy days as a school master and poet not to mention a fine playwright in the small Cornish border town of Launceston with all its characters and foibles.
Read it and be made happy!
Hughes Patton McCough they all were fans and visitors to Causley's simple Cornish home so why not let Laurence Green takes you the reader on a tour through his writings and account of a great yet simple man!

The first, but probably not the last biography of this great poet. I hope to review it elsewhere. It's rather short, but contains some invaluable material, extracts from Causley's wartime diary, photographs of him and his parents which have not been seen before, and significant dates. If you love his poetry as I do, this is required reading.

Format: Paperback
Causley was undoubtedly one of our finest poets and this meticulously researched biography is a must have for anyone who enjoys his work. Events from the poet's life are described alongside extracts from the poems, so if you've ever pondered the significance of any particular imagery created by Causley then you may well find the answer here. The author has had access to the poet's diaries and other personal records in the creation of this first biography. The resuIt is a fine biography from someone who clearly admires and respects his subject, but who hasn't avoided tackling the potentially difficult areas of Causley's life.
