1st ed. Keynes, Brooke, 5. Bookplate of Jessie Stillman Taylor. From the library of B. George Ulizio. From the Shaw bibliography: This first volume of poetry by the young Brooke (1887-1915) was praised in review by Edward Thomas. The undulations of Brooke's literary reputation reflect well the changes in taste and ideology of English and American poetry in this century. Right after the war, Graves pointedly excluded Brooke from his list of three best poets to have fallen on the English side of the war. In 1917 Brooke served for the dedicatory poem of MacDonald and Ford's "Crown of Amaranth," offered for the poets who had fallen during the war. And in 1965 I.M. Parson, in "Men Who March Away," said that the "1914" sonnets "suffer from crippling shallowness of feeling."
