Robert Hunter worked as an actor in the 1950s and '60s - at the height of his career sharing a stage with Olivier.
Subsequently he worked as a script-reader for Associated Television, and then as a security guard.
In the early 1970s, David Heidenstam put together a volume of Robert's poems, under the title The Prison. But, like all Robert's poetry, it has remained unpublished until now.
Robert Hunter died in the 1980s, but we are delighted to be able at last to publish this collection in his memory.
It includes a Foreword by David Heidenstam, of his memories of Robert, of Robert’s anecdotes from the world of theatre, and of the very different security-guard world in which they met.
In the pipeline.
