The last days of Edward Thomas; review by Alan Massie.

Thomas was killed by a German shell in April 1917. He had no idea that his poetry would be remembered—and especially highly esteemed by other poets, among them Auden and Larkin. Dylan Thomas put it well: “It is as though we had always known his poems, and were only waiting for him to write them.”
