4.0 out of 5 stars Edmund Blunden, Selected Poems 1 Mar 2009
By Patrick
Edmund Blunden's writing career began in 1914 and ended during the 1960's, giving us half a century of poetry which sidestepped the dominant literary fashions after 1930. In this new selection - including works which have been out of print for many years - the editors have sought to represent each aspect of his poetry so that the familiar is seen in context with the lesser known. Above all, Blunden retained a haunted quality to his writing, one which resonates with contemporary ideas about loss and personal dislocation.

Rennie Parker obtained her PhD in 1997 after researching the poet and composer Ivor Gurney. 'The Georgian Poets' appeared in 1999, and she has published two poetry collections. She works for Arts NK in Lincolnshire.

Margi Blunden has a degree in English and is a trained teacher. She is the eldest of Edmund Blunden's four daughters by his third marriage.
