'An original poet of rare quality' – F.R. Leavis

BIOGRAPHY:
Edward Thomas (1878-1917) was an English poet, biographer and literary critic. A contemporary of Wilfred Owen, Rupert Brooke and Siegfried Sassoon, Thomas was encouraged to write verse by the American poet Robert Frost. He was working on his debut collection, to be published under the pseudonym ‘Edward Eastway’, when he was killed in action in France in April 1917.

His work combines a romantic but unsentimental love of the countryside with a brutally honest depiction of the horrors of the Great War.

POEMS:
A Private * Adlestrop * As the team’s head brass * Blenheim Oranges * Bugle Call * Cock-Crow * Digging [1] * Digging [2] * February Afternoon [Sonnet 2] * Fifty Faggots * In Memoriam [Easter 1915] * Last Poem [The Sorrow of true love] * Lights Out * Man and Dog * October * Out in the dark * Rain * Roads * Swedes * Thaw * The Chalk Pit * The Cherry Trees * The New House * The Owl * This is no case of petty right or wrong

BONUS MATERIAL:
The War Diary of Edward Thomas, 1 January-8 April 1917
(an unabridged reading by Barnaby Edwards)

‘October’, ‘Rain, Midnight Rain’ and ‘England beautiful’
(three incidental music suites by Howard Carter)
