Jean Moorcroft Wilson relates how Robert Graves’ status as a ‘war poet’ depended mainly on his best selling 1929 memoir Good-bye to All That. His son William reprinted most of Robert’s poetry in Poems About War in 1988 and in the words of the Evening Standard this biography is: ‘a fine attempt to give Graves his due in that context’.
