• Rosenberg, Isaac

    Isaac Rosenberg (1890 – 1918) was an Anglo-Jewish poet and painter whose poetry is considered to be amongst the finest written about the First World War. He arrived in the trenches as a private in 1916 and ‘August 1914’ was the first of many poems that established his reputation. In 1918 he volunteered to return to the front after a retreat and was killed one hour later.
