Quick Reference

A group of writers who flourished briefly as a movement in the 1940s, united by a romantic reaction against what they saw as the ‘classicism’ of Auden; it expressed itself in wild, turbulent, and at times surreal imagery. Their work appeared in three anthologies, The New Apocalypse: An Anthology of Criticism, Poems and Stories (1940), edited by James Findlay Hendry (1912– ); The White Horseman: Prose and Verse of the New Apocalypse (1941), edited by Hendry and Henry Treece (1911–66), with an introduction by George Sutherland Fraser (1915–80), and The Crown and the Sickle (1945), also edited by Hendry and Treece. They described themselves as ‘anticerebral’, claimed a ‘large, accepting attitude to life’, invoked the name of D. H. Lawrence, and approved of Dylan Thomas; G. Barker and V. Watkins were also associated with the movement.
