A Tribute to Edgell Rickword David Gascoyne

Unfortunately, I did not know Edgell until we met at Norwich in a 'Symposium on the 1930s' in 1976. But I knew and admired his poetry when I was very young. I found Invocations to Angels in the library at Richmond, and found him a remarkable, exciting, and unjustly little-known poet. What I know of his criticism is also wonderful. I send these few lines with my greatest admiration, and apologies for their brevity, and inadequacy.
