What Our Customers Say...
An Important Work, Limited Edition
This edition collects his poems 'The Fish', 'Grantchester', 'The Dead' and 'The Soldier' in facsimile format from the author's original handwritten notes and compositions.
Rupert Brooke (1887-1915) was an English poet remembered for his war poetry. He was a friend amongst the Bloomsbury group of writers, and was a member of the literary groups the Georgian Poets and the Dymock poets, which included Robert Frost and Edward Thomas as members. His sonnets written during the First World War remain some of the most important examples of Western war poetry, with 'The Soldier' and 'The Dead' being his most well known verses. He tragically perished from sepsis from a mosquito bite whilst sailing with the British Mediterranean Expeditionary Force during the First World War at the age of twenty-seven.
Contains a tipped in photograph of the author taken in 1913 by Sherril Schell.
In a full cloth binding. Externally very smart, some fading to the spine and minor wear to the extremities. Internally firmly bound, pages are bright and clean, poetry is loose each in its own file.
