Categories: Travel
Originally published in 1931, this is a collection of travel essays by the English poet Rupert Brooke. We are republishing this work with a brand new introductory biography of the author with the aim of placing it in the context of his other writings. The following passage is an extract from the book's introduction: 'The author started in May 1913 on a journey to the United States, Canada, and the South Seas, from which he returned next year at the beginning of June. The first thirteen chapters of this book were written as letters to the Westminster Gazette. He would probably not have republished them in their present form, as he intended to write a longer book on his travels; but they are now printed with only the correction of a few evident slips.'

Categories: Poetry
This compilation of poetry contains the most noted and celebrated works of English poet Rupert Brooke. Distinguished from an early age, Brooke excelled in school and in Cambridge University before plunging into British literary society. An emotional breakdown following a romantic breakup led him to depart the UK for recuperation in the USA and Canada, where he would write travelogues for a newspaper named The Westminster Gazette. Upon departing North America, Brooke opted to take a long sea journey across the Pacific. In the South Seas he enjoyed a relationship with a Tahitian woman by the name of Taatamata. Prior to the outbreak of World War I and his consequent military enlisting, the handsome young literary had several other romances. Tragically, Rupert Brooke lost his life as a soldier in World War I. He died at the age of 27 in April 1915 from an infected mosquito bite during the British Army's expedition to the Mediterranean, and was buried on the Greek island of Skyros.

Categories: Poetry
Move him into the sun Gently its touch awoke him once, At home, whispering of fields unsown, Always it woke him, even in France... --From Wilfred Owen's Futility Here are the unforgettable works of two British poets who chronicled The Great War, but never lived to see its end. Although some of Brooke's verses come from an earlier, happier time, the most powerful poems convey the tragedy of warfare, including Brooke's 1914: The Soldier and Owen's Anthem for Doomed Youth and The Sentry.

Robert Browning Poem
From 'Pauline'
 by Robert Browning

O God, where does this tend-these struggling aims?
What would I have? What is this -sleep-, which seems
