From his late teens his sight deteriorated rapidly and he won a Barker Exhibition in English at Queen's College, 1939, where among Heath-Stubbs's teachers were C. S. Lewis and Charles Williams. Fellow students at Queen's were Drummond Allison and Sidney Keyes, with whom he appeared in 'Eight Oxford Poets' (1941).
