Harwood, Lee

(1939- )
   He was born and grew up in Chertsey, Surrey, and studied English at Queen Mary College, University of London. He has lived many years in Brighton, Sussex, except for a few years spent in the USA and Greece. He has had several occupations: monumental mason, librarian, bookshop assistant, post office counter clerk, and railway man. His writing career started in the early 1960s and since then he has published over 20 volumes of poetry and prose, as well as translations of the Rumanian-born French poet Tristan Tzara. "He makes use of avant-garde poetic techniques not to dramatize a radical skepticism about language or meaning, but in order to recover for poetry the kinds of "directness" or expressive energy postmodernism has taught us to distrust" (Mark Ford, The Guardian, 18 September 2004). Some of his recent publications: Monster Masks, 1985. Crossing the frozen river: selected poems, 1988. Rope boy to the rescue, 1988. Morning Light, 1993. Slow Dancer Press, 1998. Collected Poems, 1975-2000, 2004. Some of his poems: "Czech Dream," "Salt Water," "Soft White," "The Blue Mosque," "The Words."
