Description

When Edward Thomas was killed at the Battle of Arras in 1917 his poems were largely unpublished. But in the years since his death his work has come to be cherished for its rare sustained vision of the natural world and as ‘a mirror of England’ (Walter de la Mare). This new edition offers a selection of some of Thomas’s most memorable nature poetry. This heart some fraction of me happily Floats through the window even now to a tree Down in the misting dim-lit quiet vale Not like a pewit that returns to wail For something it has lost but like a dove That slants unswerving to its home and love. –Beauty
