About John Masefield

John Masefield was a novelist, journalist and poet. He won the Edmond de Polignac prize in 1912, and was appointed Poet Laureate in 1930 - a role he performed for the next 37 years. Masefield wrote 21 novels, including two children's books featuring Kay Harker, The Midnight Folk (1927) and The Box of Delights (1935). He died in 1967, and his ashes were interred in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey. Spike Milligan was perhaps best known as one of the Goons. He went on to become one of Britain's foremost comic writers and performers. His bestselling titles include Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall, Puckoon and Where have all the Bullets Gone? He died in 2002.
