Save to active project
GEORGE BARKER, born February 26, 1913, in Loughton, Essex, lives on a farm in Haslemere, Surrey, with his wife and children. He attended no university, his sketchy formal education having been undertaken in short periods of study at the Marlborough Road School, in Chelsea, and the Regent Street Polytechnic. When he left school at the age of fourteen, he tried his hand at many jobs and was at one time a designer of wallpaper and at another a garage mechanic. Having made an impressive early reputation as a poet, he was appointed visiting professor of English literature at the Imperial Tohoku University in Japan in 1939, after which he came to the United States, remaining for four years before returning to England and ground service with the Royal Air Force. He has published three novels: Alanna Autumnal; Janus; The Dead Seagull.
