“The range and energy of Constantin Severin’s imagination is apparent in every poem he writes”.

Alan Brownjohn.

These are some words about my poetry written by the famous English poet, Alan Brownjohn(a classic of the universal literature, published by PENGUIN) in a letter sent to my literary agent, Bodtker Yuniku Agency from Oslo, Norway.

Alan Brownjohn (b. 1931) grew up in London and was educated at Merton College, Oxford. He worked first as a schoolteacher and then a lecturer before becoming a full-time freelance writer in 1979. His writing life since then has demonstrated a long-lasting commitment to the promotion of poetry: he served on the Arts Council Literature Panel, was the Chairman of the Poetry Society from 1982-1988 and has collaborated in three teaching anthologies for secondary schools. His poetry has been recognised by a Cholmondeley Award and his novel The Way You Tell Them won the Authors’ Club First Novel Award and has been followed by two further novels, The Long Shadows and A Funny Old Year. A third collected poems is published in 2006 by Enitharmon.
