The Army of Death


Read by LibriVox Volunteers


Captain Sorley was among 16 Great War poets commemorated in Westminster Abbey's Poets' Corner. The inscription was written by Wilfred Owen. It reads: "My subject is War, and the pity of War. The Poetry is in the pity."

This is regarded as one of Sorley's finest poems, and was discovered in his kit after his death. (Summary by Ruth Golding)
