    DescriptionWhen Edward Thomas was killed at the Battle of Arras in 1917 his poems were largely unpublished.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 edition, drawn from Thomas' manuscripts and typescripts as well as from his published works, offers an accessible introduction to this most resonant - and relevant - of poets. "In his lifetime, he was known and loved by a very, loving few. Now, since his death, he is known and loved by very many, and yearly this is more so. There is in his poems and unassumingly profound sense of permanence. A war came and ditched him, but his poems stay with no other wounds than those which caused them." (Dylan Thomas). "A very fine poet. And a poet all in his own right. The accent is absolutely his own." (Robert Frost). "The one hundred and forty poems he wrote in the last two years of his life are a miracle. I can think of no body of work in English that is more mysterious." (Michael Longley).
