Basil Bunting

Basil Bunting Quote

The poet Basil Bunting is synonymous with literature in the North East. At Durham University, the Basil Bunting Poetry Centre fosters study and research on the Northumbrian poet, and on poets associated with him through the region, or on the modernist/post-modernist tradition. In honour of this connection, an inscription of one of Bunting’s most entertaining and illuminating quotes is displayed in the Botanic Garden.
