BF. William Empson

30. Kajiki, Ryûichi. Interview by Peter Alexander. In Alexander (BJ40), 1989, p. 357, n. 99.


Kajiki, a former student of Plomer and later a well-respected English literature scholar, reported to Alexander in 1985 that while Empson was resident in Tokyo he ‘got into serious trouble with the authorities because of . . . homosexual activity, and the Japanese police were involved’. Nothing of the incident appears in any other published source.
