To commemorate the centenary of Francis Ledwidge's death in the Battle of Passchendaele, John Quinn has compiled a selection of writings, both by Ledwidge and those closest to him. These poems, diary entries and letters follow Ledwidge's life from budding poet in County Meath to soldier facing the horrors of the battle on the western front. We discover, through Ledwidge's colourful verse, his reactions to the world around him, life as an Irish soldier in the British Army during the First World War, and his response to the execution of close friend Thomas McDonagh in the Easter Rising of 1916. Featuring an assessment by Seamus Heaney, this book will make a fine addition to any poetry and history lover's collection.
