A bit unfair on Joseph Campbell to hint that he might have been a 'Bloomsbury Set' Irishman. He belonged to a generation which tried strongly to re-assert Irish culture. But he was not afraid to criticise what he saw as the shortcomings of the fledging Republican government, and spent two years imprisoned during the civil war period for his trouble. Most of his many poems are characterised by strong rural imagery written in spare, simple English. His words set to old Irish melodies are best known today, although frequently not credited. I particularly like his poem which opens with the lines 'Deep ways and dripping boughs, the fog falling drearily.' Not Bloomsbury Square, I think, but the genuine rain soaked article.
