F(rank) T(empleton) Prince 1912–
South African-born English poet and scholar.
Prince's often-anthologized poem, Soldiers Bathing, has been hailed as the finest individual poem of World War II. His diverse interests and influences are evident in the subjects of his works: Hasidism, undergraduate life at Oxford, Rupert Brooke, and Michelangelo.
