Coming up on January 27th. Four Dymock Poets

Our next meeting will consist of readings from the work of four Dymock Poets, John Drinkwater, Rupert Brooke, Lascelles Abercrombie and Wilfrid Gibson. Edward Thomas and Robert Frost were also associated with the group, some of whom lived near the village of Dymock between 1911 and 1914. In 1915 Robert Frost returned to America. The Dymock poets published their own quarterly ‘New Numbers’ and among the poems published was Rupert Brooke’s ‘The Soldier.’ Dymock is between May Hill in Gloucestershire and the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire.
