‘Leicester Kyle’ is pronounced ‘Lester Kile’ (rhymes with ‘file’). Jack Ross’s introduction to the Leicester Kyle website follows: This site is intended as a clearing-house for information about the life and works of the late Reverend Leicester Kyle: environmentalist, poet, scientist and priest. ¶ When Leicester died in 2006, he appointed David Howard and me as his literary executors. As a result, we inherited the two large fileboxes which contained (in approximate chronological order) all of the poems he wished to preserve. David was also able to make a copy of the latest state of his computer hard-drive at the time of his death, which has proved invaluable in compiling this index to his collected poems. ¶ What I’ve done here, in an attempt to fulfill the trust Leicester placed in us, is to set up two companion sites, this one — ‘Leicester Kyle’ at http://leicesterkyle.blogspot.com.au/ — devoted to bibliographies and indexes, and the other — ‘Leicester Kyle Texts’ at http://leicesterkyle1.blogspot.com.au/ — devoted to transcripts and facsimiles of his various books and poems. The first site aspires to provide complete listings of all primary and secondary material by and about Leicester; the second to be more selective: providing complete texts of each of the major books and a selection of the shorter poems. ¶ Dr Jack Ross’s own blog site is at https://www.blogger.com/profile/01805945600952222957.
