HOMEPAGE


THE 5 HEADS OF HUMBERT WOLFE


Humbert Wolfe (1885-1940) was a poet, wit and high ranking civil servant. The book is a reappraisal of his value and coincides with the creation of 5 sculptural heads to represent aspects of his life and work.

Marble (International), Bronze (Bradford), Silver (Oxford), Gold (London Literary) and Granite (London Civil Service).

Chapters in the book contain extracts from his poetry, prose and criticism. His poetry has themes of love and death and his form is Romantic, yet between Traditional and Modern. His criticism of verse is still relevant today and highly learned. Included is an essay on Wolfe by the poet's Great, Great Nephew, the sculptor Anthony Padgett.
