Now All Roads Lead to France: A Life of Edward Thomas Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Edward Thomas was perhaps the most beguiling and influential of the First World War poets. Now All Roads Lead to France is an account of his final five years, centered on his extraordinary friendship with Robert Frost and Thomas’s fateful decision to fight in the war. The book evokes an astonishingly creative moment in English literature: a generation that included W. B. Yeats, Ezra Pound, and Rupert Brooke.

These larger-than-life characters surround Thomas, who is tormented by his work and his marriage. Ultimately the decision to fight in the war costs Thomas his life, and it is the roads taken—and those not taken—that are at the heart of this remarkable book

Synopsis:

Winner of the Costa Biography Award, a fascinating exploration of one of the twentieth century's most influential poets.
