Robert Graves was one of the leading poets of the 20th century, but his early life was nearly ended by injuries sustained on the Somme in 1916. This talk by Dr Charles Mundye, editor of Graves’s War Poems and President of the Robert Graves Society, traces Graves"s terrible road from schoolboy to soldier-poet. Poems will be read by actor and singer Natalia Farrán Graves, Robert’s granddaughter.
