"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the oppressed. Sometimes we must interfere. . . There is so much injustice and suffering crying out for our attention . . . writers and poets, prisoners in so many lands governed by the left and by the right."

more Robert Graves from wiki--the end--
Grave of Robert Graves
During the early 1970s Graves began to suffer from increasingly
severe memory loss and by his 80th birthday, in 1975, he had come to the
end of his working life. By this time he had published more than 140
works. He survived for ten more years, in an increasingly dependent
condition, until he died from heart failure on 7 December 1985 at 90. He
was buried the next morning in the small churchyard on a hill at Deià, at the site of a shrine that had once been sacred to The White Goddess of Pelion. His second wife, Beryl Graves, died on 27 October 2003 and was buried with him.
