5.0 out of 5 stars Everyman Soldier 17 Dec. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We've all read, or heard snippets of war poetry. Rudyard Kipling, Wilfred Owen and Sassoon.Each brings his own view of the conflict ranging from the insanely patriotic to the intensly personal; yet, each poet is very much a product of his generation and of the conflict he endured. Rosenberg is different: his poetry is timeless, it could apply to a Roman legionaire as much as a British infantryman in Afghanistan. Rosenberg's war poetry is timeless, tightly crafted, and truly expresses the feelings that most soldiers over the millenia have felt but were unable to express in words.

3.0 out of 5 stars No frills. 20 Jun. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If this were in a supermarket, it would be in the bit marked 'essentials'. This very slim edition contains the poems; in fact, by apparent accident it contains one of them twice, on pp.20 and 28, once with its correct title and once (differently spaced on the page) without. The text is the same in both versions but the punctuation isn't. Beyond that, there's just an editorial introduction running to 4 fairly brief paragraphs and beginning unpromisingly with the defensive 'it seems to me'. Its concluding contention that Rosenberg's finest achievements are 'at least equal in depth and emotional impact as well as verbal dexterity to anything written by Wilfred Owen' is a tenable point of view, but is left completely unsubstantiated by any kind of critical reflection. Fair enough, for the money, perhaps; but a kitchen-table-project scrappiness attends the whole presentation. I'm not sure who Will Johnson is, but he is plainly a very, very poor editor, quite possibly doing it for the first time. This has the air of a self-published project with no very obvious aim in mind. The typeface fluctuates in size according to the layout of the poems and, viewed simply as an object, this is an unlovely book. Rosenberg's verse itself is another matter. I've long been put off a lot of the poetry of this period and context because it was constantly the public school 'officer class' that got its work anthologised and published, much of this still breathing the fustian 19th-century air of a Classical education.

A much under-rated 1WW poet. A very readable account of his life and poetry. Great value for money Highly recommended.
