Robert Graves: Life on the Edge

By Miranda Seymore


Robert Graves (1895-1985) was one of the greatest poets and polymaths of the twentieth century whose long life matched the intensity of his imaginative output.

From his distinguished exploits in the First World War, described in his memoir Goodbye to All That, to his dramatic relationships with women, most notably the American poet and essayist Laura Riding, his life was one of extremes. He was a man who took huge emotional risks, and lived as if each day was his last, but who also produced works that were among the finest of his era.

‘Robert Graves: Life on the Edge’ is the definitive biography of one of the greatest literary figures of the twentieth century.
