poet, was a member of the Group during the 1950s and in the 1960s was associated with the vogue for poetry in performance. His early work was experimental and at times macabre and violent in its preoccupations; later collections show (in his own words) fewer ‘comic and performance and experimental elements’ (foreword to Poems from Oby, 1982). His works include A Form of Words (1954), The Colour of Blood (1967), and Collected Poems 1958–1970 (1971).
