George Leslie Norris FRSL (21 May 1921 – 6 April 2006), was a prize-winning Welsh poet and short story writer. He taught at academic institutions in Britain and the United States, including Brigham Young University. Norris is considered one of the most important Welsh writers of the post-war period, and his literary publications have won many prizes. George Leslie Norris was born on 21 May, 1921 in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales. His parents were George and Mary Jane Norris.
Leslie Norris came to prominence as a poet in the mid-1960s when he started contributing to the magazine Poetry Wales .
Leslie Norris came to prominence as a poet in the mid-1960s when he started contributing to the magazine Poetry Wales and after the publication of his first collection of poems, Finding Gold, in 1967. He had been writing verse since his schooldays in Merthyr Tydfil and had already published three small booklets, but he had fallen silent during the 1950s. In Norris's last years he turned to writing books for children, including Merlin & the Snake's Egg (1978) and Albert and the Angels (2000), both published in New York, and, in collaboration with Alan Keele, to translating the poems of Rainer Maria Rilke.
Merlin and the Snake's Egg. New York, Viking Press, 1978. The birds or animals or people or buildings or trees existing in my poems must exist root, branch, claw, skin, and stone. His recourse, even in later books, to boyhood memories of the boxing ring or of the collier's care for birds or dogs-or, more piercingly, to recollection of a classmate killed at Aberfan-provides the variety that makes his countryman's perception the more poignant.
But, though sometimes unoriginal in concept, they are never cliched, and Norris' lines flow with a gratifying, natural ease. Also, happily, Ted Lewin's soft, quietly charged black-and-white illustrations set an appropriate receptive mood.
Merlin's book is a book so named because it was believed to have once belonged to the legendary Merlin himself. At some point, it came into the possession of one of the Heads of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and has since been kept in the Headmaster's study.
