GUEST,Jon Dudley James Reeves (1909-1978) (20) RE: James Reeves (1909-1978) 11 Feb 20


James Reeves, the blind poet, lived in Rotten Row, Lewes. Certain 6th form boys from my grammar school (Lewes County Grammar School for Boys) were selected to go and read for him from the newspapers or of books for review. Unfortunately they only sent the brightest like Stephen Coote (now historical biographer and scholar) so that blew my chances. I would have loved to have met him. His first test of a new book for review was to bend it back upon itself to see if the binding was any good...funny what you remember...
