'Death could drop from the dark as easily as song - But song only dropped, Like a blind man's dreams on the sand, By dangerous tides, Like a girl's dark hair for she dreams no ruin lies there, Or her kisses where a serpent hides' - from Returning, We Hear the Larks' Selected Poems & Letters . Isaac Rosenberg's poems, such as Dead Man's Dump and Break of Day in the Trenches , have been included in every significant war anthology and have earned him a place in Poets' Corner.He studied at the Slade School of Art at the same time as Stanley Spencer and Mark Gertler, showing great promise as a painter. His poverty, education and background made him an outsider, yet it was just that experience which equipped him to cope with the horror of war in the trenches: 'I am determined that this war, with all its powers for devastation, shall not master my poeting.' Inexplicably for such a major figure, Rosenberg's work has been out of print for many years. In this Selected Poems and Letters , his biographer Jean Liddiard has made a substantial selection of his finest poems and most revealing letters, providing also an authoritative introduction and a detailed chronology.

Isaac Rosenberg was born on November 25th 1890 in Bristol. As a child his family moved to the squalid streets of London's Jewish Ghetto, and took any number of menial jobs to survive. Isaac only attended school briefly at age 14. He began work as an engraver's apprentice and to work in his spare time on his painting. These talents in painting and other visual arts allowed him to go to a funded place at the Slade School of Art. His early poetry was closely associated with the Romantic movement, especially the influences of Keats and Shelley. His volume of poems 'Youth' was published in 1915 and then he enlisted to fight in the War. He fought until 1918 and his death in the battle of Arras on April 1st at the age of 28. Within those few short years he found his own distinctive and clear voice. He is mainly remembered as a War Poet and on the horrific canvas that was to be The First World War he expressed himself as few others could. 'August 1914' like many of his works is short but distilled to an essence with a clear and unquenchable voice.
