Isaac Rosenberg: Drafts and changes
Drafts and changes
Now consider a typescript of 'Daughters of War'. Isaac Rosenberg often sent hand-written copies of his poems, like the draft of 'Daughters of War' that we looked at previously, to his sister Annie in London, who then typed them and sent them back to her brother in France so that he could make corrections. This image shows a version of the poem where Rosenberg has incorporated suggestions from Gordon Bottomley and Edward Marsh, another literary friend in London.
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.
