Siegfried Sassoon

The first English soldier-poet to achieve notoriety as an opponent of World War I, Siegfried Sassoon (1886-1967) ranks alongside Wilfred Owen as one of the most critical poetic voices of the Great War. A literary dilettante before his experiences in the trenches, Sassoon went on to write the acclaimed Sherston novels, a trilogy of fictionalized autobiographies.
