Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera.

Robin Skelton (Easington, 12 ottobre 192522 agosto 1997) è stato uno scrittore e poeta britannico naturalizzato canadese.

Nato nello Yorkshire, Skelton studiò alla University of Leeds e alla Cambridge University. Dal 1944 al 1947, ha servito la Royal Air Force in India. Ha poi insegnato alla Manchester University. Nel 1963 emigrò in Canada e cominciò ad insegnare alla University of Victoria in British Columbia.

Skelton fu un'autorità per quanto riguarda la letteratura irlandese, il suo lavoro come editore, e il suo interesse per l'occulto. Fu fondatore e editore, con John Peter, di The Mahalat Review, e traduttore.

Georges Zuk, un creduto poeta surrealista francese, era in realtà uno pseudonimo.
