The War became a topic for many poets. Perhaps the best known are Rupert Brooke, Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen.

Brooke’s sonnets about the war came to public attention in 1915 when the Times Literary Supplement printed two of them. His poem The Soldier was read from the pulpit of St Paul’s Cathedral on Easter Day.
