"For me, poetry is always a search for order." -- Elizabeth Jennings
This article is about the English poet. See Elizabeth Jennings Graham for the American civil rights figure of the same name.


Elizabeth Jennings (20 July 1926 — 25 October 2001) was an English poet, noted for her clarity of style and simplicity of literary approach. Her Roman Catholicism (she was a convert) coloured much of her work.

Jennings was born in Lincolnshire, but her family moved to Oxford when she was six. There she later attended St Anne's College. After graduation, she became a librarian.

She is not generally regarded as an innovator. Her work displays a simplicity of metre and rhyme shared with Philip Larkin, Kingsley Amis and Thom Gunn, all members of the group of English poets known as The Movement. She always made it clear that, whilst her life, which included a spell of severe mental illness, contributed to the themes contained within her work, she did not write explicitly autobiographical poetry.

She is buried in Wolvercote Cemetery, Oxford.
