Richard Aldington

Richard Aldington (1892–1962) was an English writer and war poet associated with the Imagist movement, and his fifty-year writing career covered poetry, fiction, literary criticism and biography. Aldington joined up in 1916 and was sent to the front. Traumatised by his experiences, he sought an outlet in verse. Exile and Other Poems, first published in 1923, was his first substantial attempt to process the trauma of his experience in poetry, and stands as a monument in war poetry.
