Barker, George

(George Granville Barker), 1913–91, English poet, b. Essex, England. He has taught in Japan and the United States as well as in England. His highly dramatic poems, often concerned with themes of remorse and pain, led critics to place him—perhaps misleadingly—among the "New Apocalypse" movement. Barker's published works include 30 Preliminary Poems (1933), Eros in Dogma (1944), News of the World (1950), The True Confession of George Barker (1950), The View From a Blind I (1962), Thurgarton Church (1969), The Alphabetical Zoo (1972), and Collected Poems (1987).
