I have always found the First World War poets fascinating - the sharp, graphic writing can still send shockwaves down my spine as I savour a new war poem, or come across one read and yet forgotten. The latest English Culture article is about one of the most famous English war poets.
It could be said that the war was the making of Siegfried Sassoon; although he clearly knew that poetry was his vocation it took the war to bring out both his courage as a leader of men and his brutally honest mastery of language.
