Over the Brazier
First Edition. Illustrated card cover. G : in Good condition. Cover edges chipped and creased. Wear to lower spine. Foxing throughout. Previous owner's inscription dated 1916. 220mm x 170mm (9" x 7"). 32pp. Cover illustration by C Lovat Fraser. Graves subsequently disparaged his wartime poems and excluded them from the authorised collections of his work. When he delivers himself of lines like 'The whole field was so smelly; / We smelt the poor dog first: / His horrid swollen belly / Looked just like going burst', it is easy to see why. Nonetheless, as mentor and friend to Owen and Sassoon, he remains a pivotal figure in British war literature. 'Over the Brazier' (1916) was his first published work.
