|Author||Blunden, Edmund (1896-1974)|
|Notes||Page 272 from a first edition of 'Undertones of War' (1928) showing the poem 'Illusions'. The prose section of the volume was written, apart from the help of a few maps, entirely from memory while Blunden was teaching in Tokyo between 1924 and 1927. Annotations in Blunden's hand added later at an unknown date. He notes that the poem was written at '[Richebourg + Cuinchy]', and changes 'earthly' in line 3 to 'earthy'.|
