Educated at Sherbourne Preparatory School and Marlborough College, MacNiece became life-long friends with Anthony Blunt. He then went on to study at Merton College, Oxford on a postmastership. During his years at Oxford, MacNiece met W.H. Auden who, unofficially, led the local poets, including Day-Lewis. MacNiece began publishing poetry in literary magazines. In 1930, he married Mary Ezra. That year he also graduated with a first class degree. He then joined the faculty of the University of Birmingham as an Assistant Lecturer in Classics. In 1932, he published his semi-autobiographical novel, Roundabout Way, using the pseudonym of Louis Malone. He began writing verse again after the failure of the novel, publishing in such periodicals as New Verse and The Criterion. In 1936, he left Birmingham and joined Bedford College for Women in London, lecturing in Greek. His marriage was over by 1937. He lectured in America during the late 1930s. When war broke out,he began working for the BBC. Following the war, he went to India for the BBC to report on their independence. In 1950, he became the director of the British Institute in Athens, Greece. He returned to England in 1951, but, two years later, left for a lecture tour in America returning to England the following year. In 1958, he was awarded a CBE. He contracted pneumonia after being caught in a storm on the moors and died shortly afterwards in hospital.
