Dymock poets

Résumé
The Dymock poets were a literary group of the early 20th century who made their homes near the village of Dymock in Gloucestershire, in England, near to the border with Herefordshire. Significant figures and events The 'Dymock Poets' are generally held to have comprised Robert Frost, Lascelles Abercrombie, Rupert Brooke, Edward Thomas, Wilfrid Wilson Gibson and John Drinkwater, some of whom lived near the village in the period between 1911 and 1914. Eleanor Farjeon, who was involved with Edward Thomas, also visited. The group published their own quarterly, titled New Numbers, containing poems such as Brooke's "The Soldier", published in 1915. During the First World War Edward Thomas joined the army, on 19 July 1915, with the initial rank of private. After just two years, on 9 April 1917, he was promoted to second lieutenant but shortly after, at the age of thirty- eight, he was killed in the British offensive at Arras by the blast of a shell.
