John Maxwell Edmonds – was educated at Oundle School before going up to Jesus College, Cambridge

John Maxwell Edmonds was an esteemed English poet, classicist and scholar. He was educated at Oundle School before going up to Jesus College, Cambridge. As a young man he was an old-fashioned traditional scholar with considerable enthusiasm for classical studies and the Greek language – both of which he would nurture throughout his life.

He recalled his time as a pupil in Oundle fondly, saying that it was “by far the most exciting period in my life”. In addition to developing his interest in poetry here, he also reported that he spent much of his spare time reading about Greek at local libraries.

In 1921, Edmonds travelled to Cambridge University where he studied Classics under Mortimer Wheeler and A.V Cook – two prominent figures in the field at the time. During these years he read multiple authors such as Aeschylus, Homer and Sophocles, honing an innate understanding for nuanced interpretations of archaic texts difficult for many current day readers to access.

Between 1923-24, Edmonds wrote tutorial essays on Aristophanes whilst studying abroad in Greece with Erika Wiczewskia notable literary figure skilled in craftsmanship among Ancient Greek printers and editors. His international exploration continued when he later moved to Paris between 1925-26 where worked within Latin Literature compilations such as those of Juvenal as well as further studies on classical theatre/drama adaptation by formulating theories on comic relief within Old Comedy authors – making sure to apply modern critical perspectives across research projects undertaken prior to his return home in 1926.

On returning home John eventually published several publications under umbrella titles on poet translations relating directly or indirectly to those terms of reference postulated through his original studies on Greek themes (I Bacchae and Poems of Cavafy). Both were published over two decades from 1933-1954 and subsequently looked upon as Edmond’s own contribution’s towards critical re examineations particular actions or procedures governing text analysis against ancient writers/contextual writings – essential during scholarly perusers who desire insight detailed textual evaluations when exploring classical genre works/discourses specifically targetted towards previously under researched areas across pre 19th century literature productions ala different country based cultures particularly For example – Edition & Translation The Athenian Popular Poetry (1937).
