READ & DOWNLOAD µ Laurie Lee : The Well-Loved Stranger Valerie Grove Ö 1 READ & DOWNLOAD Im safely secured in the literary canon even within his own lifetime Yet though he wrote exclusively about his own life Lee never told the whole story His readers know him as a man devoted to two women his wife and his daughter 'the firstborn' Among the pages of his published works there is little trace of the girls he left behind He never identified in print the girl who inspired him to go to Spain or the woman who supported him there H. This biography was a revelation for me Like many people I had an impression of Lee as a country boy who lived out most of his life within the confines of the Cotswolds In reality after he returned from his first sojourn in Spain he lived most of his adult life in and around Chelsea in the West End of London He lived a charmed life and hobnobbed with the great and the good throughout most of his adult life The book is filled with wonderful cameos As a fan of classical guitar music myself I loved the occasion when he took his friend Julian Bream to one of his old haunts in spain and watched with delight as the local flamenco musicians jaws hit the floor in disbelief at the virtuosity of this nondescript young EnglishmanLee was a man of contradictions hedonist voluptuary drunkard philanderer egotist he loved to be the centre of attention but he was also capable of great warmth and immense charm He was well aware of the importance of charm for a pennyless country boy trying to make his way in the world He believed that a person blessed with the gift of charm had no need of good looks wealth or talent in order to make their way in the world Children loved his party tricks amateur conjuring and court jester antics Women were drawn to him like moths to a flame The combined effects of charm boyish good looks and a poet s soul were irresistable For all his womanising though the one woman he really wanted the beautiful married socialite Lorna Garman Wishart broke his heart when she left him to embark on an affair with the young Lucien Freud It was Lorna who encouraged him to court her niece Kathy Polge Starting the courtship when she was barely in her mid teens he married her when she was eighteen and he was thirty six The marriage certificate was barely dry when he embarked on a passionate affair with the eighteen year old Antonia Dugdale daughter of another wealthy couple who had welcomed him into the bosom of their family although it does seem that it was antonia who instigated this relationship Lee was a serial philanderer throughout the course of the marriage He related how he would sometimes come home after a night on the tiles to find some anonymous girl curled up in his bedFor some reason the literary elite have always been a bit sniffy about Lee s achievements Perhaps it is the critics resistance to commercial success the argument that any work that is popular with the general public can have no artistic merit Or perhaps it is Lee s genuine working class heritage and his red blooded lust for life which contrasts too sharply with the ideal of artist as pallid aesthete In his review of Groves biography the critic Robert McCrum refers to Lee s artistic failure He suggests that Lee was some kind of a one trick pony who peaked too soon with Cider with Rosie and who produced no other work of similar merit Although Lee was never uite in the top drawer as a poet nevertheless he had published three well respected volumes of poetry by 1955 five years before the publication of Cider with Rosie and his journal of his return to Spain in the early 50s A Rose for Winter published in 1955 is an acknowledged classic of the travel writing genre The second part of his autobiography As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning published in 1969 became a classic of English literature on a par with Cider with Rosie As well as a number of lesser books and publications he wrote many superb evocative essays and reminiscences throughout his career a collection of which were published recently as Village Christmas So two classics of English literature a classic of travel literature three volumes of poetry and numerous superb short pieces and essays if that is failure then I would like to fail like Laurie LeeSadly having loved Lee s work since first reading Cider with Rosie many decades ago he emerges from Groves bio as a deeply flawed individual and I could not warm to him as a human being As an example I have always had severe reservations about people who dislike dogs in the course of an interview conducted in a pub at some point he noticed a dog with its owner Lee expressed his dislike of dogs and opined that dog lovers are people incapable of loving other human beings We should take no lectures on the subject of love from Laurie whose idea of love was to befriend a variety of successful well to do couples enjoy their hospitality and then embark on passionate affairs with the invariably glamorous wives As if this were not enough he would freuently seduce their daughters often barely into their teens into the bargain Throughout much of his adult life he received a great deal of financial and moral support from his mentor Wilma Gregory and yet he never publicly acknowledged how crucial this support was to the continuance of his career even when he had opportunities to do soIn A Rose for Winter his journal of his return to Spain in the early 50s he describes in great detail his impressions as he wandered evidently alone around the old town and his escapades in various bars with groups of drunken revellers so I was somewhat puzzled by his occasional reference to we did this or that It is not until well into the book when he describes how a local character in a bar sang love songs to Kati that you realise his newlywed bride Kathy had accompanied him on the journey Sadly I lost what little remaining respect I had for him on reading his description of a bullfight His obvious relish for this barbaric pursuit frankly sickened me and his contempt for the excruciating cowardice displayed by some of the bulls beggars belief The third part of his autobiography A Moment of War recalls his return to Spain in 1937 to support the Republican cause in the Spanish Civil War There has always been an element of mystery surrounding the extent to which he was directly involved in any of the fighting and many felt that the fact he waited for over fifty years to publish this third volume long after most of the participants were dead was a deliberate ploy to evade any awkward uestions about the veracity of his account Although there can be no doubt with regard to his sincerity in wishing to support the resistance against Franco most of the few remaining members of the Republican Brigades seemed to be consistent in the view that Lee had little if any involvement in the actual fighting if nothing else his recurring bouts of epilepsy would have rendered him unsuitable for service on the front line I have to say I found this by far the weakest link in the trilogy being a series of vague and sketchy recollections of the events that he claims took placeHaving said all that I am a strong believer in the need to separate the man from the art However we may view the character that emerges from Groves superbly written biography Lee s wonderful prosepoems will be read and loved long after his critics are dead and forgotten Lo terciario / The Tertiary life Lee never told the whole story
