Isaac Rosenberg: Poetry and war
Poetry and war
Isaac Rosenberg did not write his poems in isolation. He incorporated ideas and phrases from his pre-war poetry, finding ways to express the tactile and emotional experience of war through various creative metaphors. Read the text of the poem 'The Immortals', and consider how it illuminates one common feature of trench life.
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.
