About this book
A new addition to the acclaimed "Poet To Poet" series, in which a contemporary poet selects and introduces a poet of the past. Thomas was a remarkable writer, who began his career in poetry in 1914, at the age of 36, only to be killed in WWI 2 years later. Ties in with Hollis's biography of Thomas, "Now All Roads Lead To France". *Also appeared in June Buyer's Notes*
When Edward Thomas was killed at the Battle of Arras in 1917 his poems were largely unpublished. But in the years since his death, his work has come to be cherished for its rare, and sustained vision of the natural world. This title offers an introduction to this one of the resonant - and relevant - of poets.
