Isaac Rosenberg: Letter to Sonia Cohen
Letter to Sonia Cohen
Finally, consider what Isaac Rosenberg has to say about the subject, here in a letter including a version of 'August 1914', the poem you just read. Take into account the previous poems we have discussed, the images of war, the points about conditions of the trenches. Has your idea of just what it meant to be a 'war poet' during the First World War changed?
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.
