Personal Quote:

[on being imprisoned at the Acre Central Prison] It wasn't so different from being at boarding school. In other words, it was bloody awful. It was during that time, though, that I got properly interested in poetry. So it was quite useful in the end.

Trivia:

Son of a postal clerk father and homemaker mother. He trained a toy pistol on a girl in the street and took off with her ice cream. His formal education ended when he was 17 years old and served with the British Army during World War II. See more »
