John Betjeman
I'm currently reading a collected Works of John Betjeman. Anybody a fan? I did wonder if some of his poems are too exclusively 'English' for some people as well. Is this off putting for those outside of the UK at all? A few poems below, starting with the excellent Slough poem, as read by Ted Hughes, at least I'm pretty certain it sounds like Hughes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-935cbXTt_g&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PL7DD7E9AF379F9F86

THIS MONTH’S PARODY (May) How to get on in society by Sir John Betjeman | Jeremy Nicholas. Founded 1947
How To Get On In Society by Sir John Betjeman (1958) This delicious mockery of the nouveau-riche British middle-class is spot on. Betjeman has, it seems, made a note of all the pretentious vocabulary he has ever heard used by the likes of Mrs Bouquet and put them into the mouth of a (presumably) female narrator.
