Lee Harwood

Lee Harwood (born 1939) is a poet associated with the British Poetry Revival.

Early Years

He was born in Chertsey, Surrey and studied English at Queen Mary College, University of London. With the exception of some time in Greece and the United States, he has lived in Brighton since 1967.


Harwood's writing is similar to the poetry of the New York School, especially that of John Ashbery. It combines the influence of this school with a swing back towards the romantic subjectivity of British poetry around the end of World War II.

His first book, Title Illegible, was published by Bob Cobbing's Writers Forum in 1965. Harwood's Crossing the frozen river: selected poems appeared in 1988 and his most recent book is Morning Light (1998). His Collected Poems were published in 2004.
