John Betjeman is the best loved English poet of his century. Hardcover: 144 pages. Publisher: John Murray Publishers Ltd (December 1, 1989). I found the condition of the book was as advertised. The content of John Betjeman's life was refreshing. One person found this helpful.

With apologies to Sir John . Summoned by Bells' was, for me, a delight.

With apologies to Sir John: From luxury of breakfast Taken in my room And sound of birdsong interrupted Only by the strains of Bach. And so I bound my verse into a book, 'The Best of Betjeman" and handed it To one who, I was told, liked poetry The American Master, Mr. Eliot. Betjeman is a poet of great technical skill, not unlike Larkin or Thomas in his inventive explorations of poetic form, however, he is also less profound than those two champions.

Sir John Betjeman CBE (/ˈbɛtʃəmən/; 28 August 1906 – 19 May 1984) was an English poet, writer, and broadcaster who described himself in Who's Who as a "poet and hack". He was Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom from 1972 until his death. He was a founding member of the Victorian Society and a passionate defender of Victorian architecture. He began his career as a journalist and ended it as one of the most popular British Poets Laureate and a much-loved figure on British television.

John Betjeman's verse autobiography has sold more copies than any other English poem of its length this century. The touching story of a boy's growth to early manhood and the mixed joys and guilt of youth, it is also supremely a poem about places, buildings and surroundings - Highgate and Pooterland, t Cornish seaside and Chelsea, Marlborough among its Downs, the quads of Oxford, parish churches and tin advertisements on railway platforms. Who better to illustrate this autobiography than Hugh Casson, architect and former President of the Royal Academy, who has already delighted us with illustrated books on London, Cambridge and Oxford which show him to be as much in love with those places as Betjeman himself. Casson is Beqemz very near contemporary and was a close friend, matching him in passion for all matters architectural and like him a keen observer of the splendid and ridiculous. He has delighted in Summoned by Bells since it first appeared and his illustrations in line and water-colour are a perfect complement to the verse-
