Poems by Isaac Rosenberg

isaac rosenberg, war poet, poemIsaac was an English poet, who many would consider the greatest of the British war poets. Rosenberg was born in Bristol, but moved to a poor district on the East side of London in 1897. There he attended St. Paul’s School, until his family (who were of Russian roots), moved to Stepney in 1900. At 14, Isaac left school and became an apprentice engraver.

He later moved to South Africa, in the hope that the warmer climate would cure him of his chronic bronchitis. His interest also stemmed to visual art, and for a time he studied at Slade School, alongside such artist’s as Paul Nash, Stanley Spencer and David Bomberg.

Despite being critical of the war, Isaac Rosenberg needed means to support his mother, and enlisted in October, 1915, being assigned to the 12th Suffolk Folk Regiment (a battalion for men under the height of 5 foot 3in). He later transferred to the 11th Battalion, The King’s Own Royal Lancaster Regiment, and was sent to Somme, on the Western Front in France. After a particular night patrol, he was killed (either by sniper or close combat – there is some debate over which) on April 1st, 1918 in Fampoux.
