Edward Thomas is a paradox. One of our most highly-regarded poets and author of one of the nation’s favourite poems, “Adlestrop”, Thomas is also one of the least-known British poets. These essays bridge that gap by offering fresh appraisals of his work. The volume includes a word-and-image response to Thomas’s poem to his wife “And you, Helen”, by poet Deryn Rees-Jones and artist Charlotte Hodes; new research by Ralph Pite on Thomas’s relationship with American poet Robert Frost; and a discussion of Thomas as a “War Poet” by distinguished scholar Jean Moorcroft Wilson, author of the most recent, highly-praised biography of the poet. This celebratory centenary volume, edited by Adrian Grafe and Andrew McKeown, sheds new light on Edward Thomas and the roads his poems have travelled, a century after his death at the Battle of Arras on 9th April 1917.
