Ga naar: navigatie zoeken Standbeeld van John Betjeman Sir John Betjeman Londen 28 augustus Trebetherick 19 mei ) was een Engels dichter en literatuurcriticus. Zijn vader was meubelmaker en van Nederlandse afkomst. Betjeman groeide op in een buitenwijk van Londen. Hij studeerde in Oxford , maar behaalde daar niet zijn graad, omdat hij zijn werk verwaarloosde. Zijn jeugd en studententijd beschreef hij in Summoned by Bells (1960). Hij vond werk in het onderwijs en later als journalist. Recent werd duidelijk dat hij zich tijdens de oorlog met spionageactiviteiten bezighield. Betjeman nam zichzelf niet al te serieus. Zijn po«zie is mede daardoor zeer toegankelijk: hij schreef persoonlijk getinte, soms lyrische, maar ook humoristische en satirische gedichten, en deed dat in eenvoudige taal. Zijn dichtwerk mocht zich daardoor verheugen in de belangstelling van een breed publiek. Ook werd hij populair als televisiepersoonlijkheid. Betjeman was bovendien een autoriteit op het gebied van Britse architectuur en probeerde dit in zijn werk te populariseren.

      John Betjeman Centenary
      John Betjeman  The launch of the Inspired! campaign coincides with the centenary of the birth of Sir John Betjeman, former Poet Laureate and famous champion of England’s churches.  He not only loved the buildings but he got involved in them. He campaigned to save many church buildings and he is a wonderful demonstration of what one dedicated enthusiast can achieve in the conservation of historic churches. He was the first person to draw together both the architectural and spiritual in his groundbreaking Collins’ Guide to English Parish Churches and through his work encouraged a greater appreciation of overlooked Victorian church architects such as Comper, Bodley, Butterfield and Street. John Betjeman  Betjeman passed on his insatiable love of “church-crawling” – visiting churches wherever he went – to his children and this year his daughter, the writer Candida Lycett Green, is urging the nation to remember her father by visiting a church. “I can't pass a church I haven’t seen before without wanting to go in. Perhaps it is an addiction. A church provides a calm encompassing I need and crave. I feel comforted by the hearts and souls of generations of parishioners all around me. I don't see how you can get the gist of a village without going into its church, for it brings home so much of the past and the present. The names on the cleaning rota in the porch, the local carvers' art on the gravestones, the Norman moulding round the bottom of the font or the organ installed in grateful memory of those who gave their lives in the last war.”

    betjeman s 1937 poem from the collected works Continual Dew.
    by John Betjeman (1906 - 1984)
    John Betjeman published his poem about Slough in 1937 in the collected works Continual Dew. Slough was becoming increasingly industrial and some housing conditions were very cramped. In willing the destruction of Slough, Betjeman urges the bombs to pick out the vulgar profiteers but to spare the bald young clerks. He really was very fond of his fellow human beings. Slough is much improved nowadays and he might be pleasantly surprised by a stroll there.
    Come friendly bombs and fall on Slough!
    It isn't fit for humans now,
    There isn't grass to graze a cow.
    Swarm over, Death!
    Come, bombs and blow to smithereens
    Those air -conditioned, bright canteens,
    Tinned fruit, tinned meat, tinned milk, tinned beans,
    Tinned minds, tinned breath. Mess up the mess they call a town-
    A house for ninety-seven down
    And once a week a half a crown
    For twenty years. And get that man with double chin Who'll always cheat and always win, Who washes his repulsive skin In women's tears: And smash his desk of polished oak And smash his hands so used to stroke And stop his boring dirty joke And make him yell.

    Sir John Betjeman
    Sir John Betjeman is buried at St. Enodoc Church, Trebetherick, North Cornwall, England. (See map...ref no. 1) His grave is located near the south side of the church. The church itself is approached via the 10th fairway of the golf course. Betjeman died in Trebetherick on 19 May, 1984. He had a lifelong love of Cornwall and in particular North Cornwall. There are many beautiful evocations of the Cornish landscape to be found in his poetry such as: Cornish Cliffs By the Ninth Green, St Enodoc Tregardock and Old Friends At a time when many others poets were experimenting with free verse - Betjeman stuck firmly to traditional verse forms and rhyme schemes. However, the subject matter of his poetry was modern and accessible and it proved popular with the general reading public. His witty tone often led to him being dismissed by the critics as 'light-weight' - but beneath the surface his poems are often profoundly serious. The chilling poem

      The Real John Betjeman
      John Betjeman Sir John Betjeman's public image is that of a lifelong devotee of the English upper classes. In a 40-year career as a poet, he celebrated the English countryside, poked affectionate fun at the country set and cursed the vulgarity of the lower orders. The same patrician viewpoint informed his writings on architecture. Appointed Poet Laureate in 1972, he was eventually hailed by The Times newspaper: 'By appointment: Teddy Bear to the Nation'. Channel 4's The Real John Betjeman shows that behind the public image was a more complex reality. Combining hitherto unseen archive material with the testimony of friends ranging from journalist Simon Jenkins to Barry (Dame Edna Everage) Humphries, it shows that Betjeman was a high Tory lyricist who was deeply insecure about his social background and his gift for poetry; a believer in the cohesive force of Christianity who could not himself believe; and an apolitical old buffer who spied for Britain. Finding his way John Betjeman's family background was far removed from the aristocratic milieu he loved. His father, a cabinet-maker, was descended from Dutch immigrants, and, when the First World War broke out, the eight-year-old Betjeman was bullied at school by children chanting 'Betjeman's a German spy!'

    Sir John Betjeman
    Sir John Betjeman, who became Poet Laureate in 1972, was well known through his appearances on television, and his love of traditional architecture and churches. He was born in London in 1906. From early childhood, he spent holidays at Trebetherick in Cornwall and there made friends with the Headmaster of Dragon School, Oxford. As a consequence of this friendship, he went to board at The Dragon School from 1917 to 1920. Following this, he went to Marlborough College and in 1925 he became a student at Magdalen College, Oxford. Betjeman's interest in churches and architecture was kindled at the Dragon School, but he had been interested in poetry from an early age. At Magdalen, he was part of the 'literary set' and after Oxford he was determined not to join his father's business in 'trade' but to carve out a literary career instead. In October 1930, he started working for the Architectural Review and in 1933 also, briefly, became a film critic on the Evening Standard. Betjeman married Penelope Chetwode and subsequently rented Garrards Farm in Uffington where they moved in February, 1934. The Betjemans soon became immersed in village life. John become People's Warden at The Church and Penelope directed plays and become involved in the Women's Institute. They entertained many famous friends at Uffington. Their son, Paul, was born in Uffington in 1937. Garrards Farm, Uffington, the chalk-built cottage where the Betjemans lived during the 1930s.
