Siegfried Loraine Sassoon was an English poet, author and soldier. He is best know for his poems about the First World War which not only describe the horrors of the trenches, but satirise the patriotic pretensions of those who, in Sassoon's view, were responsible for the pointless deaths of millions. Egremont's talk investigates the life and work of this great war poet placing particular emphasis on the suffocating gloominess of the poet's postwar life.
'Egremont's work outclasses his predecessors ...this is an outstanding and original biography'
- Max Hastings for The Daily Telegraph
