Books for acknowledgment.jpg


Acknowledgements and thanks to the Berg Collection, for their support and help in providing access to the Field Note Books. I have found both of Edna Longley’s Annotated Collected Poems 
invaluable as a guide over the years. Also very helpful in identifying locations of ET’s poems are Matthew Hollis’s Now all roads lead to France and WM Whiteman’s Edward Thomas Country. Other biographies that have provided useful insights include Jean Moorcroft Wilson’s Edward Thomas from Adlestrop to Arras and Jan Marsh’s Edward Thomas a poet for his country. As well as Edward Thomas’s published work, other useful sources have been his letters to Eleanor Farjeon, Gordon Bottomley, Walter de la Mare, Jesse Berridge, and of course Robert Frost. The memoirs of Edward’s wife Helen and Mfanywy, his daughter provide some wonderful memories of ET and the places he loved.  And the Edward Thomas Fellowship has a huge amount of material some of which surfaces in its newsletter and all of which from now finds a permanent home at the Edward Thomas Study Centre in the Petersfield Museum. I would like to thank the Edward Thomas Fellowship for their support, and in particular special thanks to  Benedict Mackay for his assistance in this project. I am very grateful to friends and family for their feedback which will help improve the site and its posts. And finally especial thanks to Eliza without whom this site would not have existed!
