It's called 'A Conscious Englishman' by Margaret Keeping. I'm re-reading a book I finished not long ago: 'Keep it Dark' by Will Jonson

It's called 'A Conscious Englishman' by Margaret Keeping. It deals with the last few years of his life - when he's attempting to write poetry for the first time, and his friendship with Robert Frost. But what I really love about this novel is that it is also very much about his relationship with his wife Helen. Part of the narrative is in her voice and this really works well. monkeyman57: I'm re-reading a book I finished not long ago: 'Keep it Dark' by Will Jonson. Best thing I've read this century, but hardly anyone else has heard of it & I've.

To me it seems to involve the hope and possibility of a conscious collective organisation of social life. If ever there was an epoch-marking book it was surely Henry Demarest Lloyd's "Wealth against Commonwealth. It marks an epoch not so much by what it says as by what it silently abandons. It was published in 1894, and it stated in the very clearest terms the incompatibility of the almost limitless freedom of property set up by the constitution, with the practical freedom and general happiness of the mass of men.

In my book, "The Future in America," I have tried to make an estimate of the working quality of this American tradition of unconditional freedom for the adult male citizen. But this tradition has failed to produce the beginnings or promise of any new phase of civilised organisation, the growths have remained largely invertebrate and chaotic, and, concurrently with its gift of splendid and monstrous growth, it has also developed portentous political and economic evils. No doubt the increment of human energy has been considerable, but it has been much less than appears at first sight.

He was already a seasoned writer by the outbreak of war, having published widely as a literary critic and biographer as well writing on the countryside Thomas worked as literary critic for the Daily Chronicle in London and became a close friend of Welsh tramp poet W. H. Davies, whose career he almost single-handedly developed.

The narrators in this novel are the First World War poet, Edward Thomas, and his wife Helen. It is the story of a man's change from despair to fulfilment through friendship and the inspiration of nature, and of the consequences of that for his family. The novel is set in the tranquil rural world of an England gradually aware of the meaning of war.
