BD. Edmund Blunden

181. Enright, D. J. Review of Hong Kong House (144). New Statesman NS 64 (1962): 530-31.


Finds that some of Blunden’s poems that ‘celebrat[es] Eastern topics’, as in the poems of Japan in this work, ‘have an element of noblesse oblige about them’, and ‘an incongruity between subject and tone’ that suggests an ‘admiration . . . willed out of gratitude’.
