20thc British art and poetry (mainly), plus bits of my own – "Clearly I tap to you clearly along the plumbing of the world" (W S Graham)

More following of the Roberts

The Two Roberts page has been further embellished by another of their followers, the neglected but interesting David Carr. (Go here or via the tab up top, and scroll right down to the bottom.) The influence on Carr of Prunella Clough has long been acknowledged, but the effect on his work of the Roberts seems significant to me.

I like Carr’s stuff. Even when it doesn’t quite come off, he’s always pushing for something rather edgy, which you just have to admire. A real one-off.
