Encyclopedia > John Heath Stubbs

John Francis Alexander Heath-Stubbs (born 9 July 1918) is a British poet and translator, known for his verse influenced by classical myths, and the long Arthurian poem Artorius (1972). Although afflicted by blindness from the 1960s, and completely without sight from 1978, he has continued to write.


He was born in London, and educated at Queen's College, Oxford. He coedited Eight Oxford Poets in 1941, with Sidney Keyes and Michael Meyer, and helped edit Oxford Poetry in 1942-43. He lived for a time in the 1950s at Zennor in Cornwall.


He was a representative figure of British poetry in the early 1950s, and edited the poetry anthology Images of Tomorrow (1953), very much in the aftermath of the 'New Romanticism'.


He has been awarded an OBE, and the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry.


A documentary film Ibycus: A Poem by John Heath-Stubbs was made by the Chilean director Carlos Klein in 1997.

INTERVIEW WITH JOHN HEATH-STUBBS (5002 words)
Heath-Stubbs was the first poet whom I interviewed, and I wondered whether this would mean a different approach to Arthurian legend from that adopted by novelists.
I think that John Cowper Powys' Porius gives an awfully plausible picture of the sixth century, with these people of Roman descent living on in their ruined palaces, surrounded by resurgent paganism.
Although Stubbs is an English name, they married into Welsh families.
