The War Poems


The War Poems

'In later years', Sir Rupert Hart-Davis writes in his Introduction, 'when Siegfried Sassoon had written much else in prose and verse, he was annoyed at always being referred to simply as a war poet, but it was the Great War that turned him into a poet of international fame, and I feel sure that his ghost will forgive me for thus bringing together these magnificently scarifying poems'.

Sir Rupert has arranged the poems as far as possible in the order of their composition, and the reader can compare them with the poet's movements by means of the Biographical Table which is included. Fourteen of the poems in this volume are published for the first time.
