"If I should die, think only this of me: That there's some corner of a foreign field That is for ever England" Written shortly before Rupert Brooke's death in 1915, these words were to place him alongside Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon in the realm of great war poets. Yet 1914 & Other Poems also shows another side to Brooke: the loves, hopes and fears of a young man whose life and career were to prove tragically brief. 'The South Seas' series documents Brooke's stay in Tahiti, whilst 'Grantchester' is a humorous evocation of homesickness for a now-lost village life.
