Siegfried Sassoon

Oxford University is marking this year’s Armistice by launching the first ever online collection of the manuscripts of Siegfried Sassoon, focusing on his war poetry. This is the first time these have gone online and they present a comprehensive collection of his war poetry, reassembled from collections across the world. The work forms part of Oxford University’s First World War poetry digital archive, enabling online users to view over 12,000 previously unseen materials such as poetry manuscripts, letters, and original diary entries from some of the conflict’s most important poets including Wilfred Owen, Isaac Rosenberg, and Vera Brittain.
