Roy Campbell was an acclaimed and productive poet and author. Born in South Africa to parents of Scottish descent, he lived most of his adult life in Europe. His life, not unlike his poetry, was vivid, controversial, often exaggerated, and designed to provoke a reaction. His wife, Mary Garman, was an art student who travelled in the same literary circles. Their long, sometimes tempestuous relationship fueled Campbell's career, and he is regarded as South Africa's most accomplished poet.
