Description

Murray is the best kind of literary biographer.

Murray is the best kind of literary biographer. A rich and compelling patchwork of responses to the conflict (David Evans Financial Times). With lightly worn learning and considerable erudition, The Red Sweet Wine of Youth recuperates lesser-known writers such as Julian Grenfell and TE Hulme, and situates them alongside Wilfred Owen and Seigfried Sassoon.

Poignant, vivid, and unfailingly intelligent, Nicholas Murray's study offers new and finely tuned insight into the-often .

Poignant, vivid, and unfailingly intelligent, Nicholas Murray's study offers new and finely tuned insight into the-often devastatingly brief-lives of a remarkable generation of me. .A biography and exploration of the poets of the Great War, The well known poets are covered (Blake, Owen, Sassoon) as well as some of the less well known poets such as Rosenberg and Graves. The only area which is not covered is that of Female poets of the era, an omission that the author accepts and explains as due to the fact that these are the poets who took part in the fighting.

The poetry that emerged from the trenches of WWI is a remarkable body of work, at once political manifesto and literary beacon for the twentieth century. In this passionate recreation of the lives of the greatest poets to come out of the conflict, Nicholas Murray brilliantly reveals the men themselves as well as the struggle of the artist to live fully and to bear witness in the annihilating squalor of battle
