The Prophet

University Of Oxford First World War Poetry Digital Archive
Page 296 from a first edition of 'Undertones of War' (1928) showing the poem 'The Prophet'. The prose section of the volume was written, apart from the help of a few maps, entirely from memory while Blunden was teaching in Tokyo between 1924 and 1927. Annotations in Blunden's hand added later at an unknown date. He writes, 'Wants a note by 15th Cobbett'.
