poet, critic, editor, and teacher of mathematics, whose anthologies New Signatures (1932) and New Country (1933), containing work by Auden, Day‐Lewis, Empson, Spender, and others established him, in T. S. Eliot's phrase, as ‘expositor and interpreter of the poetry of his generation’. The Recovery of the West (1941) is a study of the ills of Western civilization and The Estate of Man (1951) shows him as a pioneer ecologist. He also edited the influential Faber Book of Modern Verse (1936).
