David Gascoyne

Grant us extraordinary grace,
O Spirit hidden in the dark in us and deep,
And bring to light the dream out of our sleep.’

from ‘Kyrie’ (New Collected Poems)

David Gascoyne’s death in November 2001 was marked by the lead obituaries in all the British broadsheets as well as in Le Monde. As a poet and translator he had been internationally renowned since the 1930s. He was the first chronicler in English of the Surrealist movement, and an essayist and reviewer of dazzling range. His association with Enitharmon Press dates back to 1970 and in the past decade there have been eight publications which will be a lasting testament of his importance.
