Charles Sorley

$ 1.99

Charles Sorley is unique among the war poets in his precocious recognition of the horror of war, which would only be realised by Owen, Sassoon and Rosenberg after witnessing the Somme. His poetry is ambivalent, ironic and profound. It reveals him as a poet of marked individuality and an extraordinary maturity of mind, when considering he died at the age of twenty in the Battle of Loos in 1915. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Sorley’s complete works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
