Rupert Chawner Brooke (1887-1915) was a English poet, symbol of the World War I "lost generation".
His poems, the best-known being the five war sonnets (including "Grantchester" and "The Great Lover"), were published posthumously.
Born in Rugby, where he was educated, Brooke travelled abroad after a nervous breakdown in 1911, but in 1913 won a fellowship at King's College, Cambridge.
Later that year he toured America (Letters from America in 1916), New Zealand, the South Seas, and in 1914 became an officer in the Royal Naval Division.
After fighting at Antwerp, he sailed for the Dardanelles, but died of blood-poisoning on the Greek island of Skyros, where he is buried.
