THE POETRY SOCIETY: FRIDAY READINGS
The new year opened with a reading of Twentieth Century Lyrics by our own Gold Medallists, (eight in all), led and arranged by Miss Mollie Hudson on the 19th of January, and each of these readers gave better performance and deeper feeling and variety than the bulk of our usual star-thought elocutionary visitors. It was a performance of extraordinary width and variety. Choice may seem invidious but Doreen Wiswall, (one of two all the way from Liverpool) deserved especial praise, and almost as perfect were Valerie Houchin and our well-known Renee Cohen; while Miss Hudson herself, at the President’s instance, gave admirable reading from the Laureate, as otherwise unrepresented. Our own poets made a brave show—highest I unquestioningly rate Redwood Anderson and Weston Ramsey, while Kean Seymour and Roberta Shuttleworth provoked thought. It is to be hoped that this exposition of our own best products will be continued and increased.
On January 25th we had excellent reading by Mr. John Holgate of interestingly chosen material, from the almost hackneyed yet still valuable Village Blacksmith and Burial of Sir John Moore, Spanish Cloister and Herbert, via the suitable transition of Dyment’s This is not my country to Beach-Thomas, Bridges, delicious James Reeves for children, and subtle selections from Betjeman.
Friday the 2nd February as Candlemas, the Purification of the Virgin, our valued Mr. Wilton Cole pointed out, was most suitable for consideration of that most quintessential of forms the Sonnet. A lovely reading, ably aided by Miss Kathleen Penny from Wyatt, Sidney and Daniel via six perfect Shakespeare to Drummond of Hawthornden, Milton and Keats. to Wordsworth (including his Stilton Cheese parody), to the Brownings —Elizabeth’s not-so-gifted “from the Portuguese” and Robert’s sole two ; Hopkins, Douglas, Masefield, Blunt, Lady Margaret Sackville, and Baring on Sarah Bernhardt as Phedre, a lovely selection. Miss Penny then gave her own choice, Helen Gray Cone’s The Common Street and Jan Struther’s Blunder: and we ended with Whitby’s Kingcraft from a recent Poetry Review and Shakespeare’s “When in disgust . . “ The vote of thanks was moved by Mr. Armstrong.
The 9th February, brought us a period piece indeed, Tennyson at his most sentimental and Miss Dorothy Dayus with skilled modulations reading him as he wanted to be read (as we have heard his own voice read himself, from records brought by Sir Charles Tennyson, who chose this programme, but was not present). The Lady Clare, rescued from bathos nowadays only by the superb diction, Sailor Boy, Sisters, and the Lady of Shallott. Less known were, with their somewhat dated sentiment, The Victim and Rizpah and some superb In Memoriam (the Wild Bells indeed calling for even more voice). Thanks were moved by Mr. Foley (“To make a nation forget, teach it to write !") who presented a grand-daughter of the poet and said that no Festival would be complete without Tennyson; whose Ulysses was aptly quoted by Winston Churchill. Mr. Kidd then cited his favourite Tennyson lines, and there was some discussion.
February 16th, brought us Mr. Foley’s Oscar Wilde; his admirable team excelling even their poetry-reading by the subdued drama of their reading the Cloak-Room scene and the Stolen Letter, etc., from the Importance and the Ideal, and these were followed by three extracts from De Profundis. Tribute is due to the Misses Barnard and Thompson and Mr. Holmes.
From the back of the side room it was difficult to connect or place the extracts faded up in Mr. Clifford Turner’s lovely fluctuant voice when he gave us his personal selection on February 23rd. This is a matter less of intensity than intention—we have heard thence a small woman’s fading whisper ... Shakespeare’s “I had a daughter ..." adorably audible, recalling Ainley in that room of old.
With East Coker we knew more where we were, the intermittent fading was less irritant. Could not a cheap “mike” and battery serve the side room? It came over paragraph by paragraph clear, yet not a whole.
The third part; “lighter to end with”, gave us Favourite Cat . . . Drowned, Sassoon on Richard III, and Edith Sitwell’s lovely Solo for Ear Trumpet.
The President thanked from the Chair, “unable adequately to comment on the glorious flow of sound”; and quoting Dante to this effect. In the discussion he added that Mr. Turner spoke the East Coker as if he were composing it; i.e., with real understanding, if admittedly paragraph-wise; and added later in comment on mention of “couldn’t-care-less” voices reading for the B.B.C., that this was in accordance with instructions—not to attach “meaning”, for fear of causing offence.
The 2nd of March brought us Mr. Foley’s team again, admirable at work on a programme of Welsh poetry. Vernon Watkins and Dylan Thomas came over as great poetry, Alun Lewis more dubiously. Mr. Llewellyn followed with a reading from his own work, from his Otter and Satire in Punch.
THE POETRY SOCIETY: READINGS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
The second of a monthly series of poetry readings intended to interest the younger generation in the appreciation and enjoyment of poetry was held at the headquarters of The Poetry Society, 33 Portman Square, W.I., on Saturday, January 27th, 1951.
AVE writes: “Mr. Foley brought his same team, Pam giving Walrus and Carpenter Quangle-Wangle Hat and Francis Thompson’s Evening; Daphne Tarantella, Owl and The Pussycat, Sitwell’s Gabman, by Father William up to Flecker’s Prologue; while David was delightful with Lord Lundy and Jumblies via Story of Jim and Humpty-Dumpty to Pied Piper and Tennyson’s Ulysses. It was warmly liked, the more so as being rather more mature and nearer the original intention.”

POETS’ GROUP OF THE POETRY SOCIETY
This Group, dedicated to furthering the work of active Poets within the Society, gathers “to hear each other’s work and discuss the spirit and substance of poetry.” All interested in attending future meetings are invited to communicate with me at The Well House, Ewell, Surrey.
POETS’ GROUP OF THE POETRY SOCIETY
FIRST ANNUAL SURVEY
Meetings of the Poets’ Group have taken place regularly, each second Wednesday of the month, since December, 1949. Spring and summer, these were at The Well House, Ewell. During winter, the Group met at 8E Portman Mansions, Baker Street, W.t, by courtesy of Mrs. Ayliffe. Attendances varied, averaging 8-12. Group membership now has a total of 22, all active poets who have published in book-form or in established periodicals.
Desiring to avoid passivity, in mere readings or “taking-in-each-other’s-washing”, group meetings have concentrated on discussions of poetic production and poetry in relation to current life and other arts; the spirit and substance of poetry; the possibilities of extending the appeal of poetry through allied media and by association with other arts.
The Hon. Philip Inman contributed much penetrative thought to the discussion of poetry and the cinema; and the writer was happy to supplement this by records and extracts from correspondence, covering his thirty years’ friendship with Jean Cocteau. Robert Armstrong availed himself of the Group guest facilities, by twice escorting the charming lady responsible for B.B.C. Finnish broadcasts. From the Kalevala to contemporary verse, valuable views emerged; Yorke Crompton, also of the B.B.C., proving sensitively imaginative. Discussions of State subsidy for poetry and poets ranged comprehensively. W. J. Gardiner urged, visionedly and profoundly, the inviolability of individual freedom of spirit. John Graddon trenchantly surveyed the invitiating effects of official and pseudo-educational controls and supervisions over literature. George Whitehorn, with admirable forthrightness, energetically attacked the debasement of poetry, and indeed, verse, by political diversions and subversions, deflecting it from its wider, humanly expressive functions. Particularly amusingly, he indicated how self-postulated “advance guards” nowadays tend to “announce noon at 3 in the afternoon”. In supporting the view that such coteries too often have “a great future behind them”, the writer also deplored the confusionism whereby a self-termed Left pretends that this term makes it ipso facto something ahead, whereas in the march of contemporary thought, it is more truly only very much “left” (behind).
On problems of poetry-printing and publication, Arthur Ley advanced experienced points, ably backed by his charming wife as guest. Economics in their effect on poetry, were illuminatingly presented by H. Townsend Mills, with the especial authority of his lectures and publications on economics. P. Elwin Wright, as guest, had arresting things to say of the impoverishment of poetry by propaganda such as “Basic English” and degeneration of philological knowledge in the use of words. Extracts from his forthcoming, graphic Story of Language gave this unusual point.
Poetry-drama inevitably had extensive consideration, particularly in view of the present theatre prominence of T. S. Eliot and Christopher Fry. The writer, advancing his belief in “poetry for the eye and ear”, brought forward a detailed project for a poets’ laboratory theatre sub-group. He offered experimental working facilities for this in his centuries-old Malt House at Ewell and, for presentation of masque, pastorals and garden plays, the gardens of his Well House. He maintained that, while contemporary poetry revealed many dramatic talents, some of these missed full effect through lack of practical theatre knowledge. Theatre being a distinct, independent medium, theatrecraft was important to the poetry-dramatist. He offered the suggested sub-group the collected data of his work in theatrecraft with Gordon Craig, Jacques Copeau, Stanislavski, Diaghileff and the “Teatro delle Piccole Masehere” (Italian marionettes, whose London seasons, 1927-28-29, he directed), for the sub-group researches, together with premises for poets to study stage dimensional and proscenium problems; lighting; scenic design and costumery, with the aid of model construction.
Arising out of discussions, original Group members’ work has been read, for criticism, suggestion and discussion by the Group. This has included lyric poems by Mrs. Ayliffe; parts of a poetry-drama for music by Geraldine Kalka-Cash; poems reflecting the interplay of social group forces and personal consciousness, by H. T. Mills and Mrs. Mills (Elizabeth Berger). Doris Major, Margaret Martyn, Fanny Moore, Katherine V. Richardson and Mrs. Hobday contributed some striking illustrations to several fervid discussions on form and formality in poetry. In a forthcoming discussion of the child and poetry, contributions by Yorke Crompton and John Graddon are awaited.
Formally organized discussions on set topics are avoided by the Group. So are debates, where fundamentals are frequently obscured in making debate points. The Group aim is stimulative and informative discussion—much as the members of the historic Mermaid and Apollo Club might co-operate. Poetry, not personalities, forms the main Group focus. The Group is a free association of people devoted to poetry and its making, often with violently conflicting basic ideas and ideals. It is not a mutual admiration coterie. It offers no platform for personal vanity. It seeks, not to exhibit personal output, but to stimulate and expand personal creative impulses and conceptions by an essentially congenial—if frequently contentious—communion between individual active poets.
THE POETRY SOCIETY’S CRITICAL SERVICE
The Poetry Society has pleasure in announcing the continuance of its Critical Service for Members. Two poems only may be submitted for criticism, for a minimum fee of 5s. The charge for the criticism of each additional poem is 2s. It is particularly requested that all poems submitted should be typed and that a stamped addressed envelope be enclosed.
THE POETRY SOCIETY’S AUDITIONS AND EXAMINATIONS
The Poetry Society has conducted auditions and examinations in the art of verse-speaking for many years, and its success in this valuable cultural activity is attested by the fact that the number of schools and institutions in all parts of England which the Society examines, continually increases.
