The writer and poet Robert Graves suppressed virtually all of the poems he had published during and just after the First World War.

Until his son, William Graves, reprinted almost all the Poems about War in 1988, Graves’s status as a ‘war poet’ seems to have depended mainly on his prose memoir Goodbye to All That.

Jean Moorcroft Wilson attempts to deal with this paradox as she traces not only Graves’s compelling life, but also the development of his poetry during the First World War, his thinking about the conflict and his shifting attitude towards it.
