Jon Stallworthy


The College will be profoundly sad to learn of the death of Professor Jon Stallworthy on 19 November, at his home. Jon Stallworthy was one of this country's most admired poets, for many years a central and leading figure in the English Faculty at Oxford, and at the heart of Wolfson College's life and community.


This could go in the Academics thread, but he is probably familiar to more people for his poetry.

A DDP miss, although I had pencilled him in after seeing him on a doco about WWI soldier poets the other night :(

People talk about his radical poetry of the 1960s that fused the Beat Generation with black militancy, but I'll always remember Ameri best for his R&B smash hit "1 Thing".

Spade's on fire, that's his fourth hit in little over a month, albeit split over 2 years!

I knew he was a goner, but I didn't go for him because I A) didn't want to drop any of my current picks and B) he's only worth 7 points.
