Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines Sidney Arthur Kilworth Keynes, the author of The Iron Laurel, the posthumously released The Cruel Solstice, the Collected Poems of 1945, and Minos of Crete. Keynes is usually described as a gothic pastoralist, and the present chapter argues that his work presents an agrarian nature of imagery. It takes note of the constant and dramatic voice, and the three types or aspects of reality that are present in Keynes's poems.
