Kathleen Jessie Raine

Raine, Kathleen Jessie, 1908–2003, English poet and critic, b. Ilford (now in Redbridge, Greater London), grad. Cambridge, 1929. Raine's poems and essays assert that true poetry is an expression of the spirit, the unfolding of a reality often hidden by the material appearance of things. Raine wrote a three-part autobiography (1973–7), founded (1981) the magazine Temenos in order to articulate her views, and established (1990) the Temenos Academy of Integral Studies, a teaching academy that stressed a multistranded universalist philosophy. A professor at Cambridge and the author of a number of scholarly books, she was an expert on Coleridge, Blake, and Yeats.
