Roy Campbell

a.k.a. Ignatius Royston Dunnachie Campbell

Author Code: OIRC

Born: Oct. 2, 1901 - Durban, South Africa

Died: Apr. 23, 1957 - Setubal, Portugal

Educated at Durban High School and later at Oxford, where he failed the entrance exam. Nevertheless, he acquired many new friends there, including Wyndham Lewis and the Sitwells. He moved to London in 1920. In 1922, he married Mary Margaret Garman and they would have two daughters. In 1924, Campbell published his first poem, The Flaming Terrapin, which established him as a rising star. In 1925, he returned to South Africa and began producing Voorslag, a literary magazine that satirized everything held sacred by the Afrikaners. In 1928, he added insult by publishing The Waygoose. During the 1930s, Campbell produced many volumes of verse. He volunteered for the British Army in 1942 and spent most of his time in East Africa as a coast watcher. Following the war, Campbell continued to publish poetry and translations. His life was cut tragically short when he was killed in a car crash in Portugal. His works also include Adamastor (1930), The Gum Trees (1931), The Georgiad (1931), Pomegranates (1932), Broken Record (1934), Flowering Rifle (1936), Sons of the Mistral (1938), Talking Bronco (1946), Light on a Dark Horse (1952), Lorca (1952) and Portugal (1957).
