Siegfried Sassoon : a life by Max Egremont( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Siegfried Sassoon was born in 1886 in Kent, and began writing poetry as a boy. While a brave young officer, he confronted the terrible realities of the First World War on the battlefield, in verse, and, finally, by announcing his opposition to the war in 1917, showing that physical courage could exist alongside humanity and sensibility." "By 1918 Sassoon found himself one of the most famous young writers of the time, a mentor to Wilfred Owen and admired by Winston Churchill and T.E. Lawrence. He joined the Labour Party, became literary editor of the socialist Daily Herald, and began close friendships with Thomas Hardy and E.M. Forster while trying to adapt his poetry to peacetime. Then Sassoon fell in love with the artistocratic aesthete Stephen Tennant, who led him into his group of Bright Young Things (who inspired the early novels of Evelyn Waugh). In 1933, upon the demise of his passionate and fraught relationship with Tennant, Sassoon suddenly married the beautiful Hester Gatty and retreated to a quiet country life until the couple's eventual estrangement and Sassoon's subsequent conversion to Catholicism." "Throughout the course of this turbulent life, Sassoon produced a body of work unequaled by his contemporaries. From his famous war poems to the gentler vision of his prose, Sassoon wrote masterfully of war and lost idylls."--Jacket

Examines "the life and work of [the WWI poets--many of whom were killed--which shows not only the war's tragedy but also the hopes and disappointments of a generation of men]: Wilfred Owen with his flaring genius; the intense, compassionate Siegfried Sassoon; the composer Ivor Gurney; Robert Graves, who would later spurn his war poems; the nature-loving Edward Thomas; the glamorous Fabian Socialist Rupert Brooke; and the shell-shocked Robert Nichols--all fought in the war, and their poetry is a bold act of creativity in the face of unprecedented destruction"--Amazon.com

Forgotten land : journeys among the ghosts of East Prussia by Max Egremont( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Until the end of World War II, East Prussia was the German empire's farthest eastern redoubt, a thriving and beautiful land on the southeastern coast of the Baltic Sea. Now it lives only in history and in myth. Since 1945, the territory has been divided between Poland and Russia, stretching from the border between Russia and Lithuania in the east, and through Poland in the west. In Forgotten Land, Max Egremont offers a vivid account of this region and its people through the stories of individuals who were intimately involved in and transformed by its tumultuous history, as well as accounts of his own travels and interviews he conducted along the way. Forgotten Land is a story of historical identity and character, told through intimate portraits of people and places. It is a unique examination of the layers of history, of the changing perceptions and myths of homeland, of virtue and of wickedness, and of how a place can still overwhelm those who left it years before"--Provided by publisher
