|About the Book|
The poems in this collection establish Robert Graves reputation as a war poet. (He is one of sixteen poets of World War I commemorated on the stone in Poets Corner, Westminster Abbey.) Yet Graves omitted all of them from his own collections after 1927 in an effort to put the war behind him.William Graves, his son, has edited this completely new volume, including many of the marginal notes from Robert-s library copies. Appendices include bibliographic detail, the publication record, and variant forms of the poems.
