9780810126046: Isaac Rosenberg: The Making of a Great War Poet: A New Life

Isaac Rosenberg was among the greatest poets of the First World War. The British-born son of impoversihed Russian Jews, Rosenberg fought as a private in the trenches of the Great Was and died on the Western Front in 1918 as the age of 27. In Isaac Rosenberg, Wilson examines the influence of Rosenberg's class and heritage on his writings, as well as the development of his poetic technique. She traces his maturation from his childhood in Bristol and the Jewish East End of London to art school, his travels to South Africa, and finally his harrowing service as a private in the British Army. Rosenberg was also a gifted painter and this beautifully illustrated volume oncludes some hitherto inseen self-portraits, along with photogrpahs of Rosenberg and his family. Wilson's biogrpahy brings together all known Rosenberg material with a mass of important new discoveries. Isaac Rosenberg is a long-overdue consideration of a remarkable war poet.

Jean Moorcraft Wilson is a lecturer at Birbeck College, London. She has written acclaimed biogrpahies of Seigfried Sassoon and Charles Hamilton Sorley, which have become standard works in First World War literature.

Review:

"Wilson is excellent on Rosenberg's life and her comments on his poems are always grounded."-- Frances Spalding, Daily Mail

"Admiring and devotedly researched . . . Wilson's account, incorporating new findings, is the fullest we are ever likely to get of his life."

—John Carey, Sunday Times
