Derek Stanford Remembered

Oddly, The Guardian has just today run the obituary of the poet and critic Derek Stanford. Sadly, he died 19 December, 2008. Stanford should be appreciated - among other things - for writing on The Ninties Poets with sympathy, and for his early (1954) study of Dylan Thomas. He is not - I don't think - a major Forties poet, but he was a part of the period, and deserves to be recalled.
