Rupert Brooke - The Handsomest Young Man in England
Date: 5 November 2019
Torquay Museum Society Lecture
By Emma Seaman
10.45am - 12 Noon
His patriotic poems were made famous by Churchill, but Rupert Brooke was World War I’s ‘voice of the nation’ who died without seeing combat. Emma Seaman asks whether Brooke was a naïve golden boy or a more complicated writer.
