This early work by Rupert Brooke was originally published in 1915 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. Rupert Brooke is probably best remembered for the line from his poem 'The Soldier' written during the first year of the First World War, "If I should die, think only this of me; That there's some corner of a foreign field that is for ever England". This collection contains many poems on the theme of war but he was a successful poet before the war and was a central member of the literary set the 'Bloomsbury group'.
