In today’s Observer, Robert McCrum is filling space with a piece about poets’ memorials. Ted Hughes is rightly being remembered in Poets’ Corner in Westminster Abbey, but McCrum is sniffy about some of the company he will find there:
a fraternity that includes forgotten figures such as Thomas Shadwell, Granville Sharp and Charles Sorley.
Sorley forgotten? Not in this part of the blogosphere.
Read about him and his greatest poem “When you see millions of the mouthless dead” in a very useful post on Tim Kendall’s War Poetry blog.
