Dymock poets

Dymock poets

From Poetry Wiki

The Dymock poets were a literary group of the early 20th century, who made their home near the Gloucestershire village of Dymock in England. They were Robert Frost, Lascelles Abercrombie, Rupert Brooke, Edward Thomas, Wilfrid Wilson Gibson, and John Drinkwater, some of whom lived near the village in the period between 1911 and 1914. They published their own quarterly, entitled 'New Numbers', containing poems such as Brooke's masterpiece, The Soldier. The First World War resulted in the break-up of the community.

Lascelles Abercrombie, Rupert Brooke, John Drinkwater and Wilfrid Wilson Gibson were contributors to Georgian Poetry. The poetry has fallen out of favour, but at the time was revolutionary, a rebellion against current poetic conventions. It used simple language, and took as its subjects ordinary events and people. Eddie Marsh, the artistic and literary patron, edited the five volumes of Georgian Poetry, and Harold Monro was their publisher.

John Drinkwater had close connections with the Birmingham Repertory Theatre in Station Street, which opened in 1913. He was its first manager, and wrote several plays for the company, mainly historical pieces and light comedies. The Old Rep. is now the home of the British Stage Company.Template:Poetry-stub Template:England-stub
