From the publisher

Having previously published studies on topics associated with World War Two, Anthony Rudolf now turns his attention to the poet and artist Isaac Rosenberg (1890–1918), a born revolutionary, as Robert Graves wrote. Drawing on the poet’s letters as well as the literary oeuvre, Rudolf considers what Rosenberg might have achieved had he survived the war and reflects on the work of Rosenberg’s Jewish contemporaries, the modernist poets Avigdor Hameiri and Uri Zvi Greenberg, both of whom fought in the Austro-Hungarian army, and who wrote in Hebrew. Rudolf concludes with the opening scene from his work-in-progress, Nobody’s Romeo, set in the poets’ corner of heaven. It features dialogues between Rosenberg and Keats among other poets. The book contains more than a dozen illustrations, some little known or hitherto unknown.
