Summary
"Years in the making, biographer and foremost scholar Jean Moorcroft Wilson has written the first complete biography of arguably the greatest English-language war poet, published to coincide with the centennial of the outbreak of the First World War. Hailed as "invaluable" by the Times and "thorough and perceptive" by the Observer, Siegfried Sassoon encompasses the poet's complete life and works, from his patriotic youth that led him to the frontline, and flamboyant love affairs. This single-volume opus also includes never-before-published poems that have only just come to light through the author's work. With over a decade's research, and unparalleled access to Sassoon's private correspondence, Wilson presents the complete portrait, both elegant and heartfelt, of an extraordinary man, and an extraordinary poet"--
