Edward Thomas was born in London in 1878, grew up there, and attended Lincoln College Oxford. He made his living as a literary journalist, writing several biographies and volumes of natural history, editing anthologies and contributing hundreds of reviews to the leading magazines of his time. He began writing poems in December 1914, at the age of thirty six, producing a significant and much-loved body of work in two years. In 1917 he was killed by a shell-blast at Arras. In this series, a contemporary poet selects and introduces a poet of the past. By their choice of poems and by the personal and critical reactions they express in their prefaces, the editors offer insights into their own work as well as providing an accessible and passionate introduction to some of the greatest poets of our literature.
