British modernist poet and journalist who is remembered for "Briggflatts," a long, autobiographical poem. His other literary works include What the Chairman Told Tom, The Spoils, and First Book of Odes.
He came from a Northumberland Quaker family and studied at Ackworth School, Leighton Park School, and the London School of Economics.
He was a pacifist, and his public objection to World War I landed him in Wormwood Scrubs prison in 1918.
Following his death in 1985, his family members -- including Maria Elliott, John Halliday, and Sima and Tom Bunting -- took charge of his estate and legacy.
He was introduced to Ezra Pound while in Paris in 1923. Pound later dedicated his Guide to Kulchur to Bunting.
