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:

He was one of the original signatory of the Comittee of 100, a British antiwar group, founded in 1960 by Bertrand Russell. See more »
