Isaac Rosenberg: 'Louse Hunting'
Now consider another poem on the experience of dealing with lice in the trenches. How is this poem similar to 'The Immortals'? How is it different? Consider the language of the two poems and their titles. What about the subject of the two poems? Is it only lice, or is Rosenberg trying to say something larger about death in the First World War?
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.
