Richard Minne

Richard Minne (1891-1965) was a writer of poetry and prose as well as a journalist. His oeuvre is modest and was partially planned by friends – if it had been up to the author himself, he would have published hardly anything during his lifetime. A Keatsian life marked by ill health, insecurity and a lack of recognition resulted in a literary career that lasted barely ten years. Minne’s work is characterised by irony and a degree of social engagement, both of which are unmistakeable in the wide-ranging collection ‘Pitfalls’.
