Dead Man's Dump

University Of Oxford First World War Poetry Digital Archive
Pencil draft with one pencil alteration of incomplete poem entitled 'The Young Dead', later incorporated into 'Dad Man's Dump' as lines 14-19, followed by four unused lines, then lines 20-24, remainder unused. Paper torn prior to use by Isaac Rosenberg, who was transferred to the 40th Division Works Battalion in January 1917, meaning that part of his responsibility became taking wire up to the line at night.
