Charles Causley

Charles Causley
Charles Causley, who died on Tuesday aged 86, was among the most important British poets of his generation.
Causley came to Westminster Abbey – once – for a ceremony, with appropriate music and readings, to unveil a stone to Edward Lear. ‘That was very nice,’ he remarked. ‘If church were always like that, I might come more often.’ He was the most compassionate and least sectarian of poets, and much loved by his fellow practitioners. Philip Larkin respected him, and John Wain would speak of him with affectionate wonder.
