Martin Johnson: Selected Poems And Poetry

Author: John Tranter



"Martin was a shy man and his many friends didn't simply like him, they loved him. With his astonishing memory, his passion for chess, books, and wine, his scholarship that ranged over dozens of cultures and periods, and his kindness and humour, there will never be anyone quite like him again." John Tranter Glittering with Martin Johnston's erudition and wit, this rich collection reveals a life lived with literature as its highest aim. Included are his best poems, many of them never published in book form before, a selection of his translations of Greek folk-poems and modern Greek poetry, essays and book reviews, excerpts from interviews, and family photographs. Assembled by long-time friend and fellow-poet, John Tranter, the collection captures not only Martin Johnston's brilliance and love of poetry but also his gentle charm and delight in life.
