The Poet’s Eye stands as a captivating collection of English poetry from the 1940s, deftly intertwining John Craxton’s lithographed illustrations with the carefully chosen verses of Geoffrey Grigson. Within its pages, one finds a vivid representation of the dreamlike retreat from the harsh realities of the Second World War, a distinguishing feature of the ‘Neo-Romantic’ artists in the United Kingdom. “Mr John Craxton is a young painter of original talent who had his first one-man show at the Leicester Galleries this spring. The title of this book, The Poet’s Eye, serves a double purpose for it describes the work of the artist as well as the editor’s selection of poetry.
