Bringing back into Penguin the poems and prose of the extraordinary writer and war poet Edward Thomas - with an introduction from bestselling English writer Robert Macfarlane
Fired by his abiding love of the English landscape, the poetry of Edward Thomas is some of the most astonishing of the twentieth century. By 1917, when he was killed on the Western Front, he had earned his place as one of England's most valued poets. This title brings together his finest verse with his most vivid prose writings on the countryside.
The selected poems and prose writings of Edward Thomas, with a Foreword from Robert Macfarlane, author of The Old Ways
'I have come to the borders of sleep,
The unfathomable deep
Forest where all must lose
Their way, however straight,
Or winding, soon or late;
They cannot choose.'

Fired by his abiding love of the English landscape, the poetry of Edward Thomas is some of the most astonishing of the twentieth century. A journalist, essayist and critic for many years, he was encouraged to write verse by his friend Robert Frost. He produced a late outburst of poetry of extraordinary beauty and mystery about the subjects closest to his heart: rural England and its inhabitants, landscape, atmosphere, transience, endurance and death. By 1917, when he was killed on the Western Front, he had earned his place as one of England's most valued poets. This selection brings together his finest verse with his most vivid prose writings on the countryside.
