W.S. Graham

William Sydney Graham (1918-1986) was born in Greenock, Scotland, and trained as an engineer. He settled in West Cornwall where a growing colony of experimental artists came to respect the determination and acute self-criticism with which he pursued his poetry. He wrote widely anthologised elegies for three of his artist friends, Roger Hilton, Peter Lanyon and Bryan Wynter, and is now widely viewed as one of the key UK poets of the late twentieth century. Graham’s main collections are The Nightfishing (1955), Malcolm Mooney’s Land (1970) and Implements in their Places (1977), all of which can be found in New Collected Poems (2004).
