To many, Clive James will be remembered for his TV shows in the 80s and 90s but he came equipped with much more – an all-round wit and critic, nimble enough for genial sparring and primed with a heavy-weight punch when required.

He was an author of numerous essays and searching critique, with a substantial body of work, over 40 books and translations and poetry to his name.

‘Better to think back on all the poems you have ever loved, and to realise what they have in common: the life you soon must lose’.
