Very pleased to see that, unlike many of the other versions available, this edition has not just been scanned and printed but completely reset, and is a much higher quality as a result. Lorna Beckett's great, all-new introduction gives an interesting and informative perspective of a fascinating character whose work had so much potential. A beautifully produced edition, well done!

Editions of collected poems of Rupert Brooke have been hard to obtain for many years. The major edition by Edward Marsh, published originally in 1918 and which underwent several reprints and revisions, was last reprinted in 1992. Other collections, like that by G.E.

The edition under review is therefore a most welcome addition and one which most lovers of Brooke’s poetry will value because it is handy, inexpensive and contains the plain text of his poems. Lorna Beckett, the current Chairman of the Rupert Brooke Society, has provided the collection with an excellent account of the short but eventful life of the poet). Brooke was far from conventional in his days as he was a devoted socialist and although he mixed with the rich and the mighty, especially with the Asquiths in his last years, he never accepted their values and interests. Brooke’s formative period as a student at King’s College Cambridge is well covered by the introduction. Especially valuable is the information it provides on his thespian activities like his involvement with the Marlowe Dramatic Society which is still flourishing in the University today (p. xi). His involvement is particularly apt as his the dissertation (or long essay) which won him a Fellowship at King’s in 1913 was on the Jacobean dramatist John Webster.
What I find particularly illuminating is Ms Beckett’s insight into Brooke’s mental state in the crucial years before the outbreak of the Great War (p.

I bought this book for my father in law. He is extremely pleased with it, especially as it contains poems he has not read for years.
