|Author||Graves, Robert (1895-1985)|
|Title||In the Wilderness|
|Notes||Graves note in his library copy of 'Over the Brazier' (1920) states 'Wrexham 1914 suggested curiously enough by the 3rd Bn R.W.F [Third Battalion Royal Welch Fusiliers] regimental Goat.' |
In 'Goodbye to All That' he commented: 'The last thing that is discarded by Protestants when they reject religion all together is a vision of Christ as the perfect man. That persisted with me, sentimentally, for years.' Although he described it as 'a silly quaint' poem', 'In the Wilderness' stayed in the canon, and in 'Collected Poems' (1975) it is still the opening poem. (Graves, B. and Ward, D. 'The Complete Poems: Volume 1'. 1995).
