#1 - The Poet in the Nursey
Over The Brazier
This book was the first published of Robert Graves' early poetry, from about fourteen to twenty years of age, and published during his time in the trenches in WW1, as a Captain in the Royal Welch Fusiliers. His subsequent friendships with both, Wilfred Owen, and Siegfried Sassoon, put him in the fore with the "War Poets". And whilst he himself believed that he was primarily a poet he is chiefly known now for his historical novels of, "I, Claudius," and "Claudius the God". I am happy to read this early verse into the catalogue. - Summary by cavaet
