For a good read, I recommend a biography by Paul Jenkins titled: "Richard Dyer-Bennet: The Last Minstrel".

"Sing in me muse, and through me tell the story of that man skilled in all ways of contending..."

From Library Journal, Paul Wiener:
"Rarely have I seen a visual essay of such beauty. The editing, the camera work and the calm intelligent passion of Dyer-Bennet himself will anchor the performer, project, translator and poem securely in the shifting seas of literary greatness for generations."
