John Betjeman and Cornwall


Quintessentially English, Betjeman was an 'outsider' in England - and doubly so in Cornwall where he was a ‘foreigner’. And yet, as this book describes, Betjeman also strove to acquire a veneer of ‘Cornishness', cultivating an alternative Celtic identity, and finding inspiration in Cornwall's Anglo-Catholic tradition.
