Macleod, Joseph Gordon

Tagged: Author

(1903-1984) UK barrister, poet, broadcaster and author, whose sf Satire, Overture to Cambridge: A Satirical Story (1936), based on his own unpublished play, eschews the Modernist bent of his poetry in its unpacking of the vision of a Utopian Britain – based insecurely on the writings of Aldous Huxley – that comes to a revolutionary orator in the instant before his death on stage.
