George MacBeth

George MacBeth (1932 – 1992) was a prolific writer who was born in Scotland, lived most of his life in England and died in Ireland. He worked for many years at the BBC as a producer of poetry programmes. His Selected Poems edited by Anthony Thwaite was published by Enitharmon in 2002. Like his contemporary Ted Hughes, his poetry often engages fiercely with the creatures of the natural world.
