Ok, I check this forum most days and its like the marie celeste - totally deserted and interest in Graves seems to have dried up. OH DEAR!! So, here's a tantalising question. In 500 years time, when flying cars are a thing of the past and people zap themselves (STAR TREK STYLE) from place to place and the human body is part cyborg, will Robert Graves still be remembered or will he merely be of marginal antiquarian interest?Please answer this poll or respond in the forum...

I think you've left "as a novelist" off the list.

I often wonder where Graves' reputation will go. In speaking with people who know nothing about him or who have never read him, they tend to be more interested in his life than hearing about his writing.

On the other hand, I think it's important that poets and novelists remember and write about Graves. If an enduring image of Graves remains in 500 years, I think it will, in part, be because the Donald Davies and Alan Sillitoes have reminded the world not to forget.

Of course, the reprinting of his works in the Carcanet series as well as the Complete Poems are a hell of a boost too!
