CAUSLEY (Charles, 1917-2003, Cornish Poet, Schoolmaster and Writer)

Autograph Letter Signed in full to Terence TILLER (1916-1987, Poet and Radio Producer) inviting him to "by all mans look in here if you're around but do let me have warning - it's the first week of the school holidays & I'm unlikely to be here unless I know you're coming. Plymouth much handier than Truro, by the way; it's (Truro) about 300 years away ...", 2 sides postcard with printed address at the head and autograph address on the verso, 2 Cyprus Well, Launceston, Cornwall, 23rd July

Tiller was actually born in Cornwall though he was educated in London. Just before the war, he accepted an academic position in Cairo, where he remained stranded. For the next six years he taught English literature at what was then the King Fuad I University. While there he became associated with the Personal Landscape group of poets that also included Keith Douglas, Lawrence Durrell, Robin Fedden and Bernard Spencer. His enigmatic poems about wartime Egypt, showing the influence of Wilfred Owen, gained attention through the publication of his Poems in 1941, followed by The Inward Animal in 1943.
