1944 1st Edition. A poet's view of cricket.
Edmund Charles Blunden, MC (November 1, 1896 - January 20, 1974), was an important and influential poet, author and critic. It was after the war that Blunden began his long-standing friendship with Siegfried Sassoon, who came from the same part of England and whose interests in country pursuits he shared. In 1922, Blunden was awarded the prestigious Hawthornden Prize for Poetry. Although he wrote war poems, he avoided the graphic edge that characterises the work of Sassoon or Wilfred Owen, and his memoirs of war service, though beautifully written, have been argued to have lacked the immediacy of those of Sassoon or Robert Graves. Cricket Country (1944) reflects Blunden's abiding passion for the game.
