Harold Monro

Monro, Harold, 1879–1932, English poet, b. Belgium. In 1911 he founded the Poetry Review and the following year established the Poetry Bookshop, which became a refuge and intellectual center for poets. His Poetry and Drama (1913), a successor to the Poetry Review, was discontinued during World War I, but Monro reestablished it as Chapbook (1919–25). Both periodicals had great influence on the poetical work of the time. His own work, first published in 1906, includes Children of Love (1914) and Elm Angel (1930).

See his Collected Poems (introd. by T. S. Eliot, 1933); J. Grant, Harold Monro and the Poetry Bookshop (1967).
