Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Finally back in Penguin Classics: the poems and prose of cult WWI writer Edward Thomas, with a new introduction by Robert Macfarlane, author ofThe Old Ways  

Beloved writer Edward Thomas is best known for his evocative poetry, though his writing career was varied and prolific, with more than two thousand reviews and nearly thirty volumes of topography, biography, and literary criticism published by the time of his death at age thirty-nine in World War I. After years of writing about poetry, Thomas, an intensely contemplative man who believed deeply in the power of perambulation, was encouraged by his close friend Robert Frost to write his own verse. This stunning collection includes some of his most treasured work and, with a beautiful introduction by bestselling author Robert Macfarlane, will bring Thomass extraordinary writings to a new generation of readers and aspiring writers.

Synopsis:

An essential new collection of poetry from the First World War.

This indispensable anthology brings together the works of three major poets from the First World War. Ivor Gurney (1890-1937) was a classical music composer and poet who published two volumes of poems, Severn and Somme and War's Embers. Wilfred Owen's (1893- 1918) realistic poetry is remarkable for its details of war and combat. Isaac Rosenberg's (1890-1918) Poems from the Trenches is widely considered one of the finest examples of war poetry from the period. Carefully selected by Jon Stallworthy, a professor emeritus of English at the University of Oxford, these poems comprise a landmark publication that reflects the disparate experiences of war through the voices of the soldiers themselves.
