  A POET OF THE GREAT WAR    
EDMUND BLUNDEN

A brief summary of the biography in the book

Blunden was born in London in 1896. His father was then the headmaster of a small primary school and his mother came from a family with aristocratic connections.

At the age of 12 he entered Christ's Hospital school in Horsham and in due course joined the school OTC. Though Edmund won a scholarship to Oxford he enlisted in August 1915 and was commissioned in the Royal Sussex Regiment.

He served throughout the entire First World War during which time he not only published poems but experienced the events that were to lead to work such as the poignant 'The Ancre at Hamel'.

Blunden is perhaps best known for his 'Undertones of War' but in our book we show much more about the poet, his work, his experiences and his life after the war.

He died in 1974 and a wreath of Flanders poppies was dropped onto his coffin at his burial.
