BD. Edmund Blunden


158. Interview. By John Press. 3 September 1964. In The Poet Speaks. Edited by Peter Orr. London: Routledge and Paul, 1966.

In response to an inquiry about the effects of ‘long spells overseas’ on his poetry, Blunden notes that living in Japan affected everything from his handwriting to his ‘manner’ and ‘style of . . . thought’. The result in his poetry, he believes, is that it ‘cut[s] the corners a little finer’ than it otherwise might have done.
