The collected poems
"If I should die, think only this of me;
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is forever England."
The Soldier Today Rupert Brooke is probably best known as one of the famous First World War poets. His War Sonnets, including 'The Soldier', are present in this new edition of his Collected Poems.
THE ESSENTIAL COLLECTION Brooke has continued to fascinate people of all ages and walks of life ever since his untimely death en route to Gallipoli on St George's Day 1915, at the age of 27. He lived his short life with intensity - he was not only a poet, but also a scholar, dramatist, literary critic, travel writer, political activist and soldier. Brooke had a large circle of friends, many of them leading figures of their generation including Virginia Woolf, Winston Churchill and W. B. Yeats.
