Australian writer born into the à Beckett-Boyd family—-a family synonymous with the establishment, the judiciary, publishing and literature, and the visual arts since the early 19th century in Australia.
Boyd was a novelist, memoirist, and poet who spent most of his life after World War One in Europe, primarily Britain. His work drew heavily on his own life and family, with his novels frequently exploring the experiences of the Anglo-Australian upper and middle classes. His writing was also deeply influenced by his experience of serving in World War One.
He died of cancer on 3 June 1972.
Sy Scholfield quotes "Martin Boyd, Day of My Delight, An Anglo-Australian Memoir" (Ringwood, V: Penguin, 1986), p. 1, citing his grandmother's diary.
