      1944. England, 1944 - 1987. Octavo. c. 400 pages Original Softcover. From the library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. John Francis Alexander Heath-Stubbs OBE (9 July 1918 – 26 December 2006) was an English poet and translator, known for his verse influenced by classical myths, and the long Arthurian poem Artorius (1972). nHeath-Stubbs was born in London, and educated at Bembridge School and Queen's College, Oxford. He co-edited Eight Oxford Poets in 1941, with Sidney Keyes and Michael Meyer, and helped edit Oxford Poetry in 1942–43. Held the Gregory Fellowship of Poetry at Leeds University (1952–55) and he had professorships in Alexandria (1955–58) and Ann Arbor, Michigan (1960-61). He taught at the College of St Mark and St John in Chelsea (1962–72), as well as at Merton College, Oxford for twenty years from 1972. He lived for a time in the 1950s at Zennor in Cornwall. Translated, among others, Sappho, Horace, Catullus, Hafiz, Verlaine, and most notably Giacomo Leopardi. He was a representative figure of British poetry in the early 1950s, editing the poetry anthology Images of Tomorrow (1953) and, with David Wright, the Faber Book of Twentieth Century Verse, among others. He was elected to the RSL in 1954, awarded the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry 1973, and appointed OBE in 1989. Although afflicted by blindness from the 1960s, and completely without sight from 1978, he continued to write almost to the end. Ibycus: A Poem by John Heath-Stubbs, documentary film was made by the Chilean director Carlos Klein in 1997.nHis diction was strong, yet subtle. Running through his work, like that of most romantic poets, was a nostalgia for "classicism". He was consciously literary, and his work was elaborately wrought rather than spontaneous, so it was not the kind of poetry likely to have mass appeal. However, his devotion to the craft of poetry makes his work impressive. Few writers of his time had a deeper knowledge of the English language, or cared for it more devotedly. (Wikipedia)

        [Photos]: Prisoners in German POW Camp. Christmas 1944

      1944. Five black and white gelatin silver photographs. Each image is 6" x 4.25". Wear or small chips in the corners not visibly affecting the images, very good. "POW Camp" written in ink on the verso of four of the images, the remaining image has "Officer Quarters" in the same hand on its verso. The images are all of the same group of POWs, both British and American, in their ramshackle barracks in a German POW camp. Two of the images are group shots of the men, in widely varied uniforms, and with several in silly costumes (French waiters, a Beefeater). Another shows prisoners playing a guitar and harmonicas, as other prisoners dance together, a fourth shows a man in a kilt playing percussion on a bottle accompanied by the guitarist, and the final image is of a man in a flannel robe wearing a Santa hat and a white wig handing another prisoner an American Red Cross Prisoner of War Food Package. In two of the images there is a sign reading "Merry Christmas 1944" (although there is a light penciled mark on the verso of one that reads "Xmas 43 Howe," but it seems likely they were all taken at the same time). The men are from both the army and navy, and are wearing several different uniforms: British, American, and possibly Australian, and French. Each man has a number affixed to the upper right of his uniform blouse. A few bottles, possibly of beer, are in evidence. Compelling images of men imprisoned during WWII. .
