|The sad news of the death, early in the morning of Monday, 27 October 2003 in Mallorca, of Beryl Graves, Robert's wife and editor (with Dunstan Ward, the Society's President) of the definitive collection of his Complete Poems is recorded elsewhere in these pages.
An obituary will appear in the 2003 issue of Gravesiana, the Journal of the Robert Graves Society. In the meantime, members of the Society and others may like to read some of the (increasingly large) number of obituaries to Beryl that have been appearng in the World's Press.
