Belinda Rule (belindarule) | 15 comments The American poet/academic John Leonard is a different person from the Australian poetry anthologist John Leonard.

Discovered this while I was adding this: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16... which is edited by Australian John Leonard. I handled it by making a new author record for it: John^^^^^Leonard.

The following books currently attributed to American John Leonard are definitely Australian John Leonard (may not be exhaustive):
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/27...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/71...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...

Basis of my info about Australian John Leonard is:
http://www.johnleonardpress.com/ (see bottom of page for bio note)
http://teaching.austlit.edu.au/?q=nod...
http://komninos.com.au/home/anthrevie...

Could you guys sort this out please? Many thanks.

I think I got everything for John 5^ Leonard moved over. I also separated John 6^ Leonard who researches and teaches on Milton's poetry and John 7^ Leonard who is a different Australian Poet from your John 5^.

There are still a handful of books listed under John 1^ Leonard that shouldn't be there... but a dent was made!
