Isaac Rosenberg: War and Identity
War and Identity
What about personal identity and war? Prior to 1914 Isaac Rosenberg had constructed poems based on biblical Jewish figures, something that he returned to in the poetry that he wrote at the front. Read this poem and think about how being a Jewish soldier in the British army might have influenced Rosenberg's war poetry.
This pathway gives a brief overview of some of Isaac Rosenberg's poetry and letters, and some of the images that might have inspired him during his time spent in France from the summer of 1916 until his death on 1st April, 1918.
